McCain, Schumer Say Gun Control Is Coming Back
Quote:Gun control legislation will return to the Senate floor despite an initial failed effort, top lawmakers said Thursday.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said the "broad middle" will continue to press for action on a measure hammered out by a pair of pro-gun senators that would expand background checks on gun purchases.

"My own little prediction – I think we're going to bring this bill back before the end of the year and I think you may find some changes," said Schumer, during a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor. "We may change the bill a little bit – but I think you may find some changes out there in the public. Lots of senators who thought it was safe to vote against it because of the intensity are not so sure anymore."

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., one of four Republicans to vote in support of the measure, called the proposal "common sense," even though it wasn't precisely what he would have crafted.

"But I do agree with Chuck that I think the issue is going to come back," he said at the same event.

Outside groups, such as one led by gun control advocate New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, have started running advertisements against senators who voted against the measure in an attempt to pressure them to change their position.

I have been saying it for years, you can't rust that prick as far as you could throw him. After I saw him 'jump in bed' with Clinton I was done with him forever
