Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey is close to a deal with Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia on background checks for gun show and Internet gun sales, his office said Tuesday night. The two are planning a joint press conference for Wednesday morning.
A Toomey spokesperson on Tuesday told NBC News that the two senators have agreed on all but the final details of a compromise.
Manchin told reporters Tuesday that the compromise would close the gun show loophole by mandating background checks for those transactions and also require background checks for all Internet gun sales.

We get sold out again. What a surprise.
Toomey is a Traitor.
With friends like the weak-kneed Republicans, who needs enemies?
I thought conservatives supported Tommey to get rid of Arlen Specter.
You are in opposition.
Act like it. We have plenty of laws. In fact we have far too many laws.
Stop it! Just stop it. Now.
Pat Toomey’s initials = POS.
By all means, surrender my rights. No skin off your back. You have the capital police and special dispensation from Big Sis.
Dont think I believe em. Obama is in a panic.
I have pretty much given up.All politicians now conspire to steal our constitutional rights.
How do you get a gun on the internet? I have ordered online but I had to pick it up from an FFL who called in abackground check. Is there a double secret probation internet purchase method off the record deal, thingamabob?
The fix is in
Repubs are stupid. I knew this was going to be a never ending drip,drip,drip. They let the Clinton gun control crap pass. Now just a little more. After the next shooting they will push for more. If they would STAND up and make the Constitutional case to WE THE PEOPLE and refuse to play this game, We might be free someday. I am disappointed. The Courts will not save us. The Liberals NEVER give in. I mean good grief if we are going to have gay marriage. And we will. Can the Conservatives NOT al least fight for the 2nd amendment. When they pass this stuff it just puts fuel to the fire of the 2nd’s eventual downfall.
Oh how cute..Toomey butt licking the other side..how absolutely adorable
No surprise here. He’s been a RINO from day 1.
F*** the GOP.
Let’s see the language. If I buy a gun on the internet today, I have them ship it to my nearby friendly FFL. When it arrives, I go down to the store, fill out a 4170, give him $25 and take my gun home. How does this change with this bill?
Gun show, different story as today you can still do a private transaction. So, what’s the new proposal? What if I’m in a gun show in Missouri, live in Kansas. Do I have to have it shipped to Kansas, or can I take it home? The details matter.
47% of the voters did not vote for Obama. What part of that don’t you guys understand?!! FU GOP!!
I already have to get a background check for internet gun sales.
