United States Senator Pat Toomey joined Bobby Gunther Walsh this morning to discuss Toomey's controversial plan to expand background checks on prospective gun buyers.

Toomey tells us "Criminals and mentally ill people should not have guns and I don't think that should be a controversial idea."  He added, "I think this is a win for gun owners."
