Toomey-Manchin Compromise Could Mean Gun Bill Back On

The two senators find common ground on background checks, reviving gun debate

Senators agreed on language for an alternative background check bill late Tuesday that could breathe new life into legislation that appeared to be dead on arrival.

Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., who is up for reelection in 2014 and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., will unveil their compromise bill Wednesday, but sources close to the negotiation say it addresses key concerns GOP lawmakers had that the previous legislation set unrealistic restrictions on family firearm transfers and required private sellers to keep records that could eventually be used to compile a national gun registry.
