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 "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. "

Co Gov Hickenlooper on the "culture of violence"

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on the "culture of violence" and gun safety: "certainly the culture of violence - and look at the level of violence in our media, video games, the depiction of these assault weapons again and again, there might well be some direct connection between people who have mental instability, and when they go over the edge they transpose themselves, they become part of one of those video games, and perhaps that's why all these assault weapons are used."
