WOODBURY - The Senate is set to start debating a watered-down compromise over tougher gun legislation.

Sens. Joe Manchin (D- W.Va.) and Patrick Toomey (R-Pa.) have negotiated the deal.

The deal extends federal background checks to gun shows and online transactions.

Both Senators have an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association.

The NRA says more background checks won't end gun violence.
