Reid to bring gun bill to floor with expanded background checks
#1
Quote:Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will bring gun control legislation to the floor that includes a controversial expansion of background checks for private firearm sales.

Reid said he would on Thursday evening begin the process of bringing legislation to the floor for consideration in April.

“Later tonight, I will start the process of bringing a bill to reduce gun violence to the Senate floor. This bill will include the provisions on background checks, school safety and gun trafficking reported by the Judiciary Committee,” Reid said.

Reid expressed hope that Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who is taking the lead on expanded background checks, will find a Republican co-sponsor before the Senate considers the legislation in April.

“I hope negotiations will continue over the upcoming break to reach a bipartisan compromise on background checks, and I am hopeful that they will succeed. If a compromise is reached, I am open to including it in the base bill,” he said.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
