The US Senate has passed a gun safety bill.
U.S. Senate Passes Gun Safety Bill, in a bipartisan vote, the bill was approved. It will now move to the House for approval. If it is approved in the House, President Biden signed it in Thursday.
This bill would expand background checks on gun sales and make carrying guns across state lines illegal if carrying a concealed firearm is not allowed in that state and provide protection for more potential victims of domestic abuse.
“The Second Amendment is not an absolute right,” said Democratic Senator Chris Murphy from Connecticut. There are some sensible gun safety precautions that can protect both our families and the residents of our rural, suburban, and urban areas.
“The majority of you have undoubtedly encountered people who complain that they wish they had been armed at the time or that they “should have had a pistol.” Let’s make sure those individuals cannot receive the weapons they need to carry out their fantasies of mass murder if we don’t do anything else today.”
