Latest on gun control debate
The latest on the debate over gun control.
The Democratic sponsor of the defeated gun-control plan says it would have passed easily, if not for the National Rifle Association.
Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia says there would have been 70 votes for the plan to expand background checks for gun buyers.
But the NRA said it would include the gun vote on report cards that show whether candidates support gun rights.
The Senate on Wednesday rejected the background check bill Manchin wrote with Pennsylvania Republican Senetor Patrick Toomey.
