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.
