Today I awoke to news that Senator Manchin believed he did not have the votes to pass the Toomey-Manchin Bill to extend background checks.  He was right! The Republicans who voted FOR these bills are highlighted in red.  The Amendments votes held today are listed below.

Amendment S. 715 to Senate Bill S.649: Yea 54  Nay: 46

Purpose: To protect Second Amendment rights, ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, and provide a responsible and consistent background check process.

  1. Hooray for the Senators that supported increased gun laws. They are listening to the will of the American people rather than the will of the NRA and gun manufacturers. Republicans just don’t get it – this is just one more reason they keep losing elections.
