Mayors Against Illegal Guns is launching a round of television ads to pressure seven Republican senators and two Democrats to vote for a bipartisan proposal to expand background checks.

“Some Democrats and Republicans are coming together to support comprehensive background checks on gun sales,” a male narrator states in reference to a deal unveiled earlier this week between Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), who both have A ratings from the National Rifle Association.
