Coburn Disputes There's a Deal on Background Checks

Despite reports to the contrary, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) told Roll Call that discussions on legislation to expand background checks for firearm purchases "are not anywhere near an agreement."

Said Coburn: "I don't think we're that close to a deal, and there absolutely will not be record-keeping on legitimate, law-abiding gun owners in this country. And if they want to eliminate the benefits of actually trying to prevent the sales to people who are mentally ill, and the criminals, all they have to do is create a record-keeping, and that will kill this bill."
