A guide to the 14 amendments to the Senate gun bill

The Ticket

Amid the chaos surrounding the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday, the Senate is pushing forward on a scheduled series of votes on amendments to S.649, the gun control bill known as the "Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013."

There are 14 proposed amendments to the bill, including the one that Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., is frantically pitching to conservatives. That amendment's fate appears to hinge on one or two votes.

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday he would vote for a separate amendment sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., which would ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

In the following interactive, you can view how each of the 14 amendments would specifically add or replace language to the original bills. Senators who have submitted multiple amendments, like Feinstein, appear twice on the list.
