I suppose this is timely. The Manchin-Toomey Bill would not have prevented the Sandy Hook massacre.
Adam Lanza murdered his mother, stole her firearms, and then gunned down 26 innocent people. I fail to see how yet another background check would have prevented this.
If you liked this Bill then that's fine. You support background checks for anything and everything?
Argue your points on the Bill's merits. Don't however pretend that it would somehow prevent another Sandy Hook.
