Sen. Pat Toomey, (R-Pa) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) went on "Face the Nation" to talk about a bipartisan Senate proposal to expand background checks, with Toomey explaining that not "a single word" in the bill "in any way infringes on the Second Amendment rights of a law-abiding citizen," adding optimistically: "I think when people see the bill they're going to support it."
And if they don't?
"We came here to do something," Manchin said. "We've got a chance to make a difference in people's lives. We have a chance to save lives and not infringe on law-abiding citizens of this country, gun owners like myself and Pat. We have that opportunity, and God help us if we don't do it."
