Senate quietly working for deal on background checks
A bipartisan group of senators is reportedly making progress on a deal for universal background checks, which could include a way of closing the gun show loophole.
Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Mark Kirk, R-Ill., who are both "F"-rated by the NRA, and Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., who are both "A"-rated by the NRA, have been quietly working on a compromise.
