    One gun control measure is winning bipartisan support in the Senate.

    FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from Washington:

    Audio clip:

    The legislation would create federal penalties for so-called straw purchases, buying a firearm for the sole purpose of selling it to someone else.

    (Collins) “These guns are frequently sold, resold and trafficked across state lines.”

    Maine Republican Susan Collins unveiling the revamped gun trafficking bill along with its author Vermont Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy.

    (Leahy) “No question we can do this in a way that’s consistent with the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment.”

    It’s part of a larger gun control package the Senate Judiciary Committee plans to consider later this week.
