Far from dead, legislation expanding background checks before gun sales still has a chance of passing this Congress, Democratic leaders in the House and Senate said Wednesday.
While the background check issue has been dormant on Capitol Hill since the Senate shot down such a proposal earlier in the year, Democrats argue that enough pressure on House GOP leaders would return the topic to prominence and force a floor vote before next year's mid-term elections.
"So we're going to pass this law," he added. "We are going to finish the job and pass background checks and then move on and do other things we have to do to get guns off the streets and stop gun violence."
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) echoed that message, pressing GOP leaders to take up the background check bill and arguing that a majority of House lawmakers would support it if they did. House passage, Pelosi continued, would then increase the odds of the bill clearing the Senate.

Make that “Newtown.”
If these political hacks want to stop so-called “gun violence,” or at least put a major dent in it, all they need to do is lock up all the violent black, Mexican, etc. gang members in the big cities.
We all know the real goal is to dis-arm white conservatives.
Psssst, hey democrats if you like your plan you can keep it. So please now proceed to gun control and seal the fate of those Senators in Red States.
“Background checks would not have prevented Newton or any of the high profile shootings since Obastard has been in office.”
Newtown was caused by an incredibly stupid woman that paid for her stupidity with her life. Its a shame others had to pay for her stupidity too.
As you say, no background check would have prevented it.
I saw a video yesterday of blacks in NJ playing a "game" they call Knockout. They target someone walking down the street (all were white that I saw) whether it's male or female and see if they can hit them hard enough to knock them out. All for what they call fun.
Red Dog believes highly in compromise and finding common ground.
Lets stop turning a blind eye to our country's invasion and ensure "undocumented immigrants" don't avoid immigration background checks.
Conservatives would get to stop the invasion and leftist could investigate people...what's not to like?
Sleep well, R.D.
Put this on a billboard across from the White Hut...right in his face, and without a favorite slight of hand of his...the middle finger.
Just go away.
Leave our rights ALONE.
How about background checks on people running or elected to Congress and the White House?
That would leave the Democrats as a third party and No Bama, Jarrett, Axelrod anywhere near the White House.
If you want to see how bad it is, get a copy of Trevor Loudon’s news book, “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the US Congress”, 2013, www.pacificfreedomfoundation.
Then you will cry!
Let me guess, if they get caught some sympathetic judge will give them a couple days in jail and release them. Not a year in prison like they should get.
Aw, I thought it was background checks for Obamacare Navigators.
OMG, I love it.
Pelosi is nuts.
