Senate draws NRA fire

Senators Manchin and Toomey draw NRA fire over their bipartisan Senate bill on background checks for gun purchases.

Sen. Toomey: "I think this debate in some ways is underscoring just the extent to which there is a polarization in our society, a political polarization, the acrimony that has gotten into politics is manifesting itself in this debate. And I think that's unfortunate."

Sen. Manchin: "What we're seeing is, is same as we're seeing in the political arena, whether you're Democrat or Republican, whether you're elected or you're running for an office, they're getting caught by different other extreme groups, really extreme groups who are putting out falsehoods and just outright lies that are not even addressed in this bill."

McCain: North Korean nuclear weapons "a matter of time"

Sen John McCain tells Candy Crowley it's only "a matter of time" until North Korea has nuclear capability if not already.

"I don't think we know for sure. There have been other miscalculations by our intelligence agency, but have no doubt that they're on the path to achieving that capability.  Look what they've achieved over the last 10-15 years, and also exported including to other countries, including Iran. And so they are a danger. So I think it's a matter of time before they have that capability. Whether they do or not right now, I don't - it's not clear."

McCain "disposed" to supporting gun bill

Sen. John McCain says he's "very favorably disposed" to support the Manchin-Toomey gun bill on background checks.

"I'm very favorably disposed. But first of all, I would like to thank Pat and Joe for their work together. We need to do a lot more of that. And I'm very favorably disposed towards that. Eighty percent of the American people want to see a better background check procedure. The Internet aspect of it, which I need more explanations - greater explanation of, but, look, I appreciate their work. "
