Is that different from the following, which is at your link?

By a vote of 54 to 46, the Senate defeated the Manchin-Toomey Amendment to S649, the gun legislation bill which Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) introduced last week. The amendment would have expanded background checks for the purchase of firearms as well as create a commission to study the causes of mass violence in the U.S. There are eight more amendments to be voted on.

Yes that is different. They are voting on 6 amendments today, and 2 more tomorrow. The Toomey, Schumer, Manchin amendment was defeated, which is excellent news.

Evil. It's called having an evil heart and mind.

A commission. Sheesh.
