The Senate on Tuesday broke through nearly 30 years of stalemate on gun control legislation by voting 64 to 34 to advance an 80-page gun safety bill to respond to the mass shootings in Buffalo, N.Y., and Uvalde, Texas, that left 31 people dead, including 19 school children.

The Senate voted to proceed to the bill just more than an hour after negotiators unveiled its text, giving lawmakers little time to digest its details.

The article goes on to state the following:

The bill had strong momentum after a group of 10 Republican senators led by Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), who has an A-plus rating from the NRA, earlier this month signed onto a bipartisan framework of principles with 10 Democrats.


The report notes that the bill doesn’t include many of the “far-reaching” reforms that Democrats wanted, such as bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and universal background checks.  However, all Senate Democrats are expected to support the bill.

NPR shared information on provisions included in the bill:

  • The bill would expand background checks for prospective gun buyers between the ages of 18 and 21. The new process would incentivize states to provide access to previously sealed juvenile records and could add several days to the waiting period before a purchase can be completed.
  • Another major change is an expansion of an existing law that prevents people convicted of domestic abuse from owning a gun.
  • However, it also includes a new section to allow people who are restricted from gun access under the legislation to have their gun rights restored if their record remains clean for five years.
  • The legislation also includes incentives for states to create so-called red flag laws that would allow law enforcement or other entities to petition a court to remove guns from a person deemed to be a threat to themselves or others.

The 14 Republican senators who voted to advance the bill are as follows:

  • Sen. John Corrnyn (Texas)
  • Sen. Mitch McConnell (Ky.)
  • Sen. Thom Tillis (N.C.)
  • Sen. Susan Collins (Maine)
  • Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.)
  • Sen. Bill Cassidy (La.)
  • Sen. Roy Blunt (Mo.)
  • Sen. Richard Burr (N.C.)
  • Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah)
  • Sen. Rob Portman (Ohio)
  • Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.)
  • Sen. Joni Ernst (Iowa)
  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
  • Sen. Todd Young (Ind.)

  1. So babies were killed to get this passed because when you see the pictures of the police in the uvalde school it makes you wonder if it was intentional.

    • Me too, always Rinos going against us! Need them OUT! Where is the protection for our children by using our taxpayer money to harden “every single School”! Nothing else will work, so frustrating!

      • WTH, we need to vote these 14 RINOS out, they worthless and not fighting for us!
        This is only the start, the Democrats are trying for decades to disarm us, bc they are scared of the American citizens with weapons! They know, if we are defenseless, they can do to us whatever they feel like it! Read the history of the Third Reich under Adolf Hitler! This is a Democratic goal and agenda!

  2. And still nothing is said about all the illegal guns on the streets, especially in demorat run cities who already have some of the strictest gun laws

  3. This bill will do nothing to prevent people from killing another if they want too. I can think of more then just a few ways in just minutes and not a one uses a gun.
    These asshats are worried not for the public’s safety, but their own.
    Trying to dismantle the first amendment and it’s protection the 2nd could be the spark that sets this country on fire. If the courts do not uphold the Constitution, the Patriots in this country will move against those that are attacking it.

  4. Most of these rinos are just that , we need to vote them out, joni earnst from Iowa surprises me, I agree with you Lisa it’s all very suspicious.

  5. Big, BIG MISTAKE. Feds are buying up all the ammo, you have to be stupid not to see what’s coming.
    Remember what George Washington said about arms nd ammo.

  6. Both our so called Senators voted for this, but I already knew they were Rino’s. One is leaving thank goodness, and in 2024 we need to get the other Senator out. I am going to do everything I can to put the word out.

  7. All 14 of these so-called senators are RINOs, and clearly not listening to the majority of their constituents and they need to be primaried out of office.

    NONE of these senators, nor any of the dem senators, took the time to review and make charts showing that the cities with strict gun control are NOT safer, nor is there less crime in those cities. They did not bother to show the truth of the ineffectiveness of existing strict gun control laws – and added to it.

    All the dems and these 14 RINOs have done is restrict the average, law-abiding citizens’ rights.

    They’re all pandering fools who don’t belong in office. Shame on all of them.

    • I wish to associate myself with your excellent remarks.

      All of these senators deserve to be replaced in their next primary.

  8. Unless there are legal consequences for false ‘red flag law’ claims, no way. People accused others of just about everything already. A pro active, anti 2A legal & court system will be a EXPLOIT this to harrass firearms owners.

  9. This is not legal!!! Our constitution is Americas law. These Rinos need to stop with there backing of the Democrats, and we the people need to get them out once and for all!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

  10. A very stupid knee-jerk reaction that does nothing to solve the real problem… Why is it the Republicans are always the weak ass dumb f’s that give in to the dumb ass Dems…

  11. Strange that the same Democrats who claimed to be so upset and angry over the killings of those kids, are mostly the same ones who want the right to murder a full term newborn.
    How about a new law saying that DA’s and prosecutors must follow EXISTING laws?

  12. And it should read here are the 14 that needs to go, they do not support the constitution or the people. We are being played by a bunch of fake politicians. This so called law is the beginning of the end folks. For all the trolls sitting back doing nothing thinking this is going away, think again. Ignorant fools
