    Joe Manchin says on verge of gun deal

    Sen. Joe Manchin says he is on the verge of a bipartisan deal to expand background checks for gun sales, an agreement that could lead to the biggest change in U.S. gun laws in nearly 20 years.
    Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat, has been meeting with conservative GOP Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania over the past week to try to forge a deal on background checks.


    Following a briefing with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Manchin told reporters the two sides were very close to an agreement.

    “We’re getting there. We’re really getting there,” Manchin said. “Tomorrow we hope to be at the point where we can finalize everything.”

    I can agree with this. Universal Background checks seems like common sense and a good step forward for this country.

    What's in the deal for pro-gun? What are we getting that we didn't have before? Anti-gun gets background checks, and pro-gun gets... assault rifles?....national reciprocity for CCW permits?....elimination of some gun-free zones?....silencers without any paperwork? What?

    I guess you get to keep your guns, no magazine limit, no assault weapons ban. IMO seems to be a big win for the right.

    Will this bill ever make it to the floor for a vote though?

    2 men, Mike and Bob, brake into your home. Mike wants to rape you orally and Bob wants to empty your safe. Oral rape takes to long and the safe will take a while to crack, so Mike and Bob negotiate and compromise. Mike will rape you vaginally which will take less time, and Bob will only grab what's in plane sight because it's easier.

    You see their agreement to rape you and steel your open property as a good bi-partisan compromise.

    ******
    Since only anti-gun gets anything, this deal is not bipartisan, it's just partisan.

    Interesting metaphor; interesting logic. I know we have lost sight of what our legislature is all about. The primary purpose of government is to make laws that solve societal problems. Not everything is a compromise.
