Feinstein: Background Checks Would Not Have Stopped Newtown

"Mr. President, I'm sure background checks will stop many would-be murderers but they would not have prevented Newtown. The weapons were legally purchased by his mother, and while he was disturbed he had no criminal record or no record of mental illness and would not have been subject to a background check because his mother gave him these weapons. Let me be clear, universal background checks are very important I strongly support them but they would not have prevented the tragedy in Newtown."
