From Pennsylvania Senator Toomey (R)

In the end, background checks didn’t pass because we’re so politicized. There were some on my side who did not want to be seen helping the president do something he wanted to get done, just because the president wanted to do it

Finally it is confessed -
what we know the Rs have been doing for decades -
party before country!



Read the Rules

He didn't get the Democratic votes either. The real problem is no one is sure than background checks work. Maybe we ought to ban pressure cookers!!!

The FBI denied 72,659 attempted gun buys in 2010, based on red flags raised by the background check system, according to the most recent data available from the Department of Justice. That’s just 1.2 percent of the more than 6 million applications. The most common reasons: nearly half were felony indictment or conviction; 19 percent were fugitives; and 11 percent were those who had violated state laws.
