WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Senators Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk will introduce a bipartisan bill to crack down on gun trafficking and straw purchasing. The Illinois senators say the Stop Illegal Trafficking in Firearms Act of 2013 will be considered Thursday by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Durbin says the bill would create the first specific prohibitions in federal law to deter straw purchasing or gun trafficking.
