Sen. Toomey (R) Wants Expanded Background Checks On Guns


Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) have introduced an amendment to expand background checks for gun purchases. It makes it more difficult for millions of private gun owners to sell their firearms, such as at gun shows.

He also wants every person who buys a gun from a gunshow to go through a background check. How would they be able to implement that without registration?

BREAKING: Firearm Regulation Hearing Set for the 14th

The U.S. Senate has scheduled a hearing for the 14th of September titled “Firearms in Commerce: Assessing the Need for Reform in the Federal Regulatory Process”

Does that sound good to anyone? If you live in or near D.C. I urge you to sit in on this hearing and report back what was discussed. It sounds to me like another improper use of the “commerce clause”.

Additional Info: The hearing was called by the chairman of the committee Senator Leahy of Vermont.
