Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) is leading a coalition of senators that are trying to create a federal background check law for private firearm sales. The list of Senators rumored to be signing off on this legislation include: Tom Coburn (R-OK), Susan Collins (R-ME), Joe Manchin III (D-W. Va.), Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), John McCain (R-AZ), Jeff Flake (R-AZ). It is important you let all of them, and your own senators know this is not acceptable. The Senate switch board phone number is (202) 224-3121
Private, voluntary transactions should never ever be impeded. It is already against the law to sell a firearm to a known felon, or someone you know cannot legally posses a firearm.
