A day after a pair of proposals aimed at preventing terror suspects from buying guns failed in the Senate. A bipartisan compromise is renewing the debate.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:

Standing alongside several moderate Republicans and Democrats, Maine Republican Susan Collins unveiled a measure that would stop gun sales to anyone on the no fly or secondary screening lists, totaling about 109,000 people:

(Collins) "The vast majority of whom are foreign nationals."

Backers include Virginia Democrat Tim Kaine:

(Kaine) "There's been one tragedy after the next and this body has been impotent, weak."

And South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham:

(Graham) "There's a way for you to get off the list, but there's not a way to stop you from buying the gun unless you do what we're doing."

Leaders from both parties have expressed some concerns, though, there could be a preliminary vote this week.
