Senate Gun Control Bill Actually a "Christmas Tree" of Pro-Gun Measures?

Sounds like the pro-gun group Second Amendment Foundation had a heavy hand in crafting this Manchin-Toomey bill.

Here's SAF's Alan Gottlieb bragging about it:

“There’s a Million other checks in there it’s a Christmas Tree,” bragged Gottlieb, “We just hung a Million Ornaments on it.”

It sounds like, in exchange for universal background checks, quite a few pro-gun measures are going to be included in there, such as National CCW Reciprocity, and no record-keeping (hence registration), which could make it a bitter pill for the pro-control side to swallow.

Indeed, it makes you wonder how much the pro-gun side can get away with adding before the antis deep-six their own proposal.

This could be fun to watch.
