Lawmakers Like Schumer, McCain Promise More Gun Control To Come

April 30, 2013 by  

Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have vowed that the assault on Americans’ 2nd Amendment rights will resume soon.

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said that a plan to expand background checks for gun purchases created by “pro-gun Senators” will receive support from the “broad middle” among lawmakers in coming months.

“My own little prediction: I think we’re going to bring this bill back before the end of the year, and I think you may find some changes,” Schumer said during a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor last week. “We may change the bill a little bit, but I think you may find some changes out there in the public. Lots of Senators who thought it was safe to vote against it because of the intensity are not so sure anymore.”

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), who was one of the four Republicans to vote in support of the failed initial background check expansion bill, said it was “common sense” to support such legislation.
