Udall Criticizes Failure of Bipartisan Background-Check Compromise

Posted: Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Mark Udall issued the following statement criticizing the U.S. Senate's failure to pass the bipartisan compromise Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) reached on expanding background checks to prevent criminals and the mentally ill from obtaining firearms.

"I am disappointed that my colleagues could not come together and support this bipartisan background check legislation to prevent criminals and the mentally ill from obtaining guns. It's a sad day for our nation when a minority of the U.S. Senate has blocked common-sense legislation that is supported by 90 percent of Americans. And Colorado gun owners, hunters and sportsmen understand that part of responsible gun ownership is ensuring that if you sell your firearm to someone else, that person is legally allowed to own it."
