The folks at the NRA sent us this video, the latest in their Stand & Fight series about Chuck Schumer who has told us that he won’t push for universal gun registration, has flipped, unsurprisingly;
The Senate Judiciary Committee may have an up-or-down vote on Dianne Feinstein’s Scary Black Guns Ban as early as Thursday according to the Washington Post. Among the things may vote on is a Schumer bill on background checks;
…the committee plans to consider a bill by Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) to expand the nation’s gun buyers background check system. What’s unclear is what version of the Schumer bill will be considered: An older version introduced in previous congressional sessions, or an updated version that includes bipartisan support. Schumer has been in negotiations with Sens. Joe Manchin III (D-W. Va.), Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) in hopes of earning moderate Democratic and Republican support for a plan that could expand background checks to all private firearms sales with limited exemptions.
Schumer’s bill is S.374. Oddly enough, I can’t find the text of the bill. However, Joe Manchin is going to be welcomed in his office tomorrow morning by yet another fax from a disgruntled voter.
