Reid Votes Against Gun Bill

(Washington, DC)  —  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who supports expanded background checks for gun buyers, ended up voting against the bill.

The measure was defeated in the Senate Wednesday.

On his Facebook page, Reid says his vote was for “procedural reasons.”

He says the move will allow him to “bring it up for a vote in the near future” under what he calls a “rather odd Senate rule.”

Senate rules state a senator must vote with the majority in order to file a motion to reconsider.
