Pravda MSNBC: Senators: Deal Reached On Background Checks.
Two key senators have reached a deal to expand background checks to firearms sales at gun shows and on the Internet, sources close to the negotiations said early Wednesday.
Um, guys? You already can't buy guns on the Internet without a background check. Go to one of the Internet sellers, Gunbroker, what have you, and purchase a gun. Said gun has to be shipped to a local FFL, who then does the standard background check, has you fill out a ATF Form 4473, the whole nine yards.
No background check, no gun.
The article is short on details (and facts, and accuracy, but hey, it's MSNBC), but it would seem that what senators Manchin and Toomey (R), State of Cowardice, propose is an expansion of background checks that really doesn't expand background checks.
I suppose that's better than the other kind of anti-gun legislation, the kind that stop gun crime without really stopping gun crime.
