WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Supporters of tougher gun laws have won a key vote in the Senate.
Conservatives were defeated Thursday, 68-31, in an attempt to block the gun control proposals from coming to the floor.
The vote clears the way for a debate on gun control legislation.
An emerging bipartisan deal would expand required background checks for sales at gun shows and online, not private purchases.
