@BarackObama tweets related to: Gun, Victims—lawmakers, Lobbying, Background

Of all the proposals to reduce gun violence now pending in Congress, there was one that seemed most likely to bring the two parties together: requiring background checks for buyers in private gun sales. Republicans and Democrats said this measure would help keep guns out of the wrong hands, especially the proliferating handguns that now account for nearly three-quarters of gun deaths.
