WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate has rejected a bipartisan effort to expand federal background checks to more firearms buyers in a crucial showdown over gun control.

Wednesday's vote was a jarring blow to the drive to curb firearms sparked by December's massacre of children and staff at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. President Barack Obama made broadened background checks the centerpiece of his gun control proposals.

The roll call was also a victory for the National Rifle Association, which opposed the plan as an ineffective infringement on gun rights.

The proposal would have required background checks for all transactions at gun shows and online. Currently they must occur for sales handled by licensed gun dealers.

The system is designed to keep criminals and people with mental problems from getting guns.

Yes! And Mary Landrieu voted FOR the bill. DO NOT FORGET THAT in 2014. She must go.

Thank you Senator David Vitter for voting against that liberty robbing bill.

I agree. She has to go. This is not the first time she has supported legislation that would put our Constitutionally guaranteed rights at risk. She is NO SUPPORTER OF LOUISIANIANS and needs to be voted out of the Senate and then anything else she ever runs for.

WE NEED TO REMEMBER THIS!!!
