He also said that a February 2013 poll showed 90 percent of Americans wanted universal background checks for gun buyers.
"We would target a couple of these states — Wyoming for example, where both senators voted against the background check law," Mr. Fineman said. "We would simply let those senators know that if they didn't vote for the law, we would call for a boycott of their state. If you don't vote for it, we're going to hurt your state, big time. This country runs on money. It's as simple as that."
