This was entirely expected, for one of the anti-gun Senators to put a hold on the reciprocity bills. It was always going to take 60 votes to get this passed, as it did last time it was up. Do we have sixty votes? Hard to say. Last time it failed by two, if I recall, but Schumer had some more votes in his pocket if he had needed them. It should be noted that this hold is on both S.2188, which is the bipartisan bill, and S.2213, which is only being sponsored by Republicans. I still stand by my prediction that without both parties coming together around one bill, that this won’t happen.
Worth noting that Senator Pat Toomey has signed on as a co-sponsor to S.2213, but that Senator Bob Casey Jr. has not signed on to either, despite claims of being pro-gun. Also worth noting that Senator Casey allegedly had a deal cut with Schumer to vote no on the bill if needed.
