The Senate is due to vote this afternoon on measures that would expand background checks on gun buyers to include Internet and gun-show purchases. It's not certain that the package has the 60 votes required to gain approval, and even if it does, it could fall in the House, where there is significant opposition. Stocks to watch include Smith & Wesson (SWHC) and Sturm, Ruger (RGR).
