Feedback at 5:00: Gun Control Debate

Posted: Updated:

On Wednesday, most Republican Senators and four Democrats voted down the most far-reaching gun control legislation in two decades.

It was an attempt to expand background checks to people who buy guns at gun shows and over the internet.

The Senate also voted down a ban on assault weapons and on gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

It came in response to the shootings at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school.

The National Rifle Association called the legislation "Misguided."

President Obama called it a "shameful day for Washington" and added the effort is not over 

What do you think of the vote?

It's tonight's "Feedback at 5:00."
