The Daily Quote

“McConnell and other top Republicans — opposed to a bipartisan deal by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) to expand background checks to all commercial sales and close the so-called ‘gun show loophole’ — are trying to craft poison pill amendments that could sink the agreement.”
