The US Senate approved a bipartisan gun control bill Thursday night, the most comprehensive piece of gun reform legislation passed by federal lawmakers in nearly three decades.
The $13 billion measure was approved 65-33 and received enough Republican support to avoid a filibuster, a scenario that was unthinkable before the recent elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas and the Buffalo grocery store rampage moved 15 GOP Senators to compromise on a bill.
The article goes on to state the following:
The measure toughens background checks for gun buyers under 21 and provides financial incentives for states to enact red flag laws that would keep weapons out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.
Republicans in the House are expected to strongly oppose the bill.
First thing tomorrow morning, Rules Committee w/ meet then immediately a floor vote, said @SpeakerPelosi. "And we will send the bill to President Biden for his signature, with gratitude for his leadership.”#GunControl

President Joe Biden, however, has expressed support for the legislation.
“Our kids in schools and our communities will be safer because of this legislation. I call on Congress to finish the job and get this bill to my desk,” Biden said.
Meanwhile former President Donald Trump spoke out against the bill, zeroing in on Republicans who were working on the bill, which was spearheaded by Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).
Taking to his Truth Social account, Trump wrote on Wednesday:
The deal on “Gun Control” currently being structured and pushed in the Senate by the Radical Left Democrats, with the help of Mitch McConnell, RINO Senator John Cornyn of Texas, and others, will go down in history as the first step in the movement to TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY. Republicans, be careful what you wish for!!!
He followed up Thursday writing:
Mitch McConnell’s push for Republican Senators to vote for Gun Control will be the final straw. Just like he gave away the Debt Ceiling and got NOTHING in return, or handed the Dems a great sound bite and victory with the Infrastructure Bill, which is actually all about the Green New Deal, he is now forcing approval of the FIRST STEP IN TAKING AWAY YOUR GUNS! Republican Senators SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR THIS CAREER ENDING BILL!!!
Enhanced funding for school security & mental health treatment is a good thing — but it’s being combined with giving the left a foothold to limit the 2nd Amendment. I voted against the gun control bill because Americans' constitutional right to keep & bear arms is not negotiable.
