See you in Hell, Toomey-Manchin BG Check Amendment

Good riddance to a godawful idea. In all the hyperbole, emotion-baiting, and majority-citing about the Toomey-Manchin background checks compromise, no one ever came close to a reasonable argument for how it would be effective or practical. It's about time the politicians using shame and populist hysteria to push through ridiculous, unconstitutional laws and calling it "compromise" got a taste of what it's like to be on the wrong side of a vote.
