Manchin Still Pushing Gun Bill

Sen. Joe Machin (D-WV) told the Wall Street Journal that enough senators could be persuaded to revive and pass the gun background check measure defeated yesterday. He claimed that 70 lawmakers would have supported his amendment with Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) if the NRA hadn't warned lawmakers that it would include their votes in its influential rankings.

Said Machin: "If they hadn't scored it, we'd have gotten 70 votes. They made a big mistake."
