Democrats, NRA reach deal



Senior Democrats have reached an agreement with the National Rifle Associatio­n on what could be the first federal gun-control legislatio­n since 1994, a measure to significan­tly strengthen the national system that checks the background­s of gun buyers. Under the deal, participat­ing states would be given monetary enticement­s for the first time to keep the federal background database up to date, as well as penalties for failing to comply.
