WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's prospects for winning near-universal background checks for gun purchases seemed shaky as the Senate Judiciary Committee prepared for Congress' first votes on curbing firearms since December's horrific shootings at a Connecticut elementary school.

Besides expanding background checks, the other measures would ban assault weapons and ammunition magazines carrying more than 10 rounds, make gun trafficking and the purchase of firearms for people barred from owning them federal crimes, and provide more money for schools to buy video cameras and other safety equipment.

All four measures were expected to pass the committee, perhaps Thursday. But their fate when the full Senate considers them, probably in April, was less certain. The trafficking measure by panel Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., was thought to have the best prospects and the assault weapons ban by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., seemed to have the slimmest chance.

"make gun trafficking and the purchase of firearms for people barred from owning them federal crimes"

Except for Obama's cronies who can break the laws and get away with it.

I thought that was already a crime. confused2


It's not about having great power.
It's about knowing where the rocks are.

Straw purchase, already a law for that. Now enforcement of that law is shall we say lacking especially in cases like Fast and Furious

We do not need any more gun laws, just enforce the ones that are already on the books. Same could be said for most things other than guns.


lf the saying "Liar, Liar your pants on fire" were true
Mainstream news might be fun to watch
