U.S. Senator Pat Toomey said Monday he hopes Congress can pass legislation to expand background checks.
“I’m not promising or guaranteeing an outcome here, but I am promising to continue the effort. And I do think we are in a somewhat different environment where maybe we can build the momentum," Toomey said as he headed into a forum with business and civic leaders in Lewisburg.
Toomey was greeted outside the meeting by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
He said he spoke with President Trump Monday morning.
