Toomey Background Check Amendment Voted Down

April 18, 2013

It was a favorable 54-46 vote, but U.S. Senators did not have enough support to pass a provision on laws related to the sales of firearms that would have expanded background checks for the buyers of firearms.

The amendment, co-sponsored by Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey needed 60 votes to advance.  Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey also supported the measure.

Responding to the vote, President Barack Obama said it was a “pretty shameful day for Washington,” and vowed he would continue to vote for stricter gun laws.

Opposing the Toomey proposal, Iowa Senator Charles Grassley stressed the view that “criminals do not submit to background checks.”

The Senate was to vote on a total of nine provisions on both sides of the debate on stronger gun control laws.
