Corker Votes for Grassley Amendment, Against Toomey-Manchin Amendment

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., today voted in favor of the Grassley amendment and against the Toomey-Manchin amendment.

"Like most Americans, I want to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and dangerous mentally ill people. Today I supported the Grassley amendment to enhance mental health reporting requirements, which I believe is the central issue, and to improve the background check system in a way that is not an impediment to Second Amendment rights. Unfortunately, the Toomey-Manchin amendment overly burdens a law abiding citizen's ability to exercise his or her Second Amendment rights and creates uncertainty about what is and is not a criminal offense when it comes to gun ownership."
