Gun background check deal in jeopardy in Senate

Quote:WASHINGTON (AP) — A bipartisan proposal to expand background checks to more gun buyers seemed in jeopardy Monday as a growing number of Republican senators expressed opposition to the proposal, perhaps enough to derail it. But there was plenty of time for lobbying and deal-making to affect the outcome, and the sponsors seemed willing to consider carving out at least one exemption in an effort to drum up votes.

The White House said President Barack Obama was calling lawmakers, as both sides hunted support for a nail-biting showdown.

And how much you want to bet that Boston had a lot to do with it. Senators might wake up and start adding up 1 and 1.

And they'll see that we need more security, or that gun control wouldn't have done a damn thing to stop Boston?
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

They will never see that gun control wouldn't have done a damn thing to stop Boston. They will always go with more security and less liberty. One of my immediate thoughts after the bombing was great now they may push to go after reloading supplies or exploding targets, as soon as somebody presents the notion that said supplies could possibly have been used.
