The Toomey-Manchin gun contorl amendment was thought to be the Senate’s best shot at passing any gun control this legislation.

It failed to reach the 60 votes needed, getting only 54 of the needed votes.

The defeat of this bill should more or less kill gun control for the immediate future in Congress.

Several senators from both parties defied their party’s stance.

The Democrats voting AGAINST gun control:

  • Max Baucus (D-Mont.)
  • Mark Begich (D-Alaska)
  • Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.)
  • Mark Pryor (D-Ark.)
  • Harry Reid (D-Nev.)*

*Note: Reid’s vote was only a procedural vote. Reid had to vote no in order to bring the matter back up again

Republicans voting FOR gun control:

  • Susan Collins (R-Maine)
  • Mark Kirk (R-Ill.)
  • John McCain (R-Ariz.)
