    Default Gun bill to be reintroduced

    Manchin: Gun bill to be reintroduced

    WASHINGTON (AP) One of the architects of failed gun control legislation says he's bringing it back.

    Sen. Joe Manchin on Sunday said he would re-introduce a measure that would require criminal and mental health background checks for gun buyers at shows and online. The West Virginia Democrat says that if lawmakers read the bill, they will support it.

    Manchin sponsored a previous version of the measure with Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania. It failed.

    Manchin says there was confusion over what was in the bill.

    In the wake of last year's school shooting in Newtown, Conn., Congress took up gun control legislation, but it was blocked by supporters of the powerful pro-gun lobby, the National Rifle Association.

    Manchin appeared on "Fox News Sunday."

    An armed populace cannot be controlled easily and safely. I wish there were as much emphasis put on gov't. spending and border control.

    I was not confused by what was in the bill. If Shumer has his name on it, You KNOW it aint good!
    Also know any bill passed is just a foot in the door for even more control of the peons.

    What's a surprise is he announced it. I would think this dead beat dumb f&%k would have tried a back door deal with his buddy Obumma to take away our rights when we weren;t looking.

    yea ! the damned government wants to CONTROL the law abiding citizens.

    this gun control crap does nothing to prevent crime.

    if the government wanted to do something to prevent so called 'gun violence" they could have took that 9,000 man police task force to chicago and cleaned up the gang-bangers.

    the didn't do a thing so is the WHITE house supporting the gangs now?

    Cummon 427... We all know it's going to stop "Pookie" from going into his local gun store and walking out with a brand new assault weapon without a background check. You know because background checks never happened before this bill was introduced.

    Ok I'm lying this is stupid. They aren't trying to take away my guns I will admit that but they are trying to take away future generations' guns. They want to limit my ability to turn them over to my kids thats all this is about.
