Manchin: Gun bill to be reintroduced

on April 29, 2013 10:40 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — One of the architects of failed gun control legislation says he’s bringing it back.

Sen. Joe Manchin on Sunday said he would reintroduce a measure that would require criminal and mental health background checks for gun buyers at shows and online. The West Virginia Democrat said that if lawmakers read the bill, they will support it.

Manchin sponsored a previous version of the measure with Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania. It failed.

Manchin says there was confusion over what was in the bill. He appeared on “Fox News Sunday.”
