Sen. Schumer: Universal background checks are ‘sweet spot’ for gun safety

• Prison Planet

Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Schumer said he is the author of a bill on universal background checks and predicted that “in the next week or two” lawmakers would show broad support for such a measure.

“I’d say this is the sweet spot in terms of actually making us safer and having a good chance of passing. This is it,” Schumer said.

“I think this is the best chance we have of getting something done and I think you’re going to have much broader support than you’d ever imagine,” he added.
