On the heels of MSNBC host Chris Matthews’ Wednesday broadcast in which he repeatedly urged his viewers to call Congress and ask their legislators to support gun control legislation, The Huffington Post reporter Sam Stein reported Thursday that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) will present a bill to his colleagues on gun control tonight. Calling it a “victory for gun control advocates,” Stein said that it was likely that a measure for increased background checks for firearms purchasers will be put before the Senate.

“I’m told reliably that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will move a bill, starting tonight, in that it will have background checks in the base component of it, which means it won’t be offered as an amendment,” Stein reported. “That’s a victory for gun control advocates.”
