Having cleared a potential Republican filibuster, the debate over gun control continues in the Senate.
FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:
There's still doubt there's enough support in the Democratic-controlled Senate for gun control, but Pennsylvania Republican Pat Toomey says measures that he and West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin are proposing would expand background checks with a focus on criminals and mental illness.
(Sen. Toomey) "This is about whether or not it's reasonable to try to make it more difficult for dangerous people - for whom it's already illegal for them to have weapons - to obtain them."
Private sales would be exempt. A Federal gun registry would be banned in the Toomey-Manchin bill. Manchin also telling CNN's "State of the Union":
(Sen. Manchin) "What we're asking for is just for our colleagues to read it."
And that the Manchin-Toomey measure could come to a vote this week.
