OLYMPIA, Wash. - A bill that would have required background checks for all gun sales appeared to be dead Tuesday night.

The prime sponsor of the bill, Rep. Jamie Pedersen, D-Seattle, said he did not have enough support in the House.

Currently background checks are only required when guns are purchased at licensed dealers.

Private sales and those at gun shows do not require background checks.
