US Senators Approve Bill to Tighten Gun Control

The initiative to tighten gun control was supported by 65 senators. This is the first significant federal gun safety law in decades.

The US Senate has supported a bill to tighten gun control. This is reported by CNN.

65 senators voted for the legislative initiative: 50 Democrats and 15 Republicans. 33 Republicans opposed the law.

Today, June 24, the House of Representatives of Congress can approve the bill, after which it must be signed by United States President Joe Biden.

As journalists emphasize, this is the first major federal gun safety law in recent decades.

The document refers to the provision of grants to states to seize firearms from individuals who potentially pose a threat to themselves and others. The law will also ban the purchase of firearms for at least five years by citizens previously convicted of domestic violence. Such a right can be restored if the person does not commit any illegal acts during this time.

After the signing of the law, the FBI will work with state law enforcement agencies to thoroughly screen buyers of firearms under the age of 21.

< p>Senators also approved the allocation of about $15 billion to ensure the safety of educational institutions and programs for the treatment of mental illness.

As the newspaper notes, the bill was supported against the backdrop of two recent cases of shooting in the country. On May 14, a white supremacist college student opened fire at a Buffalo supermarket. He killed 10 people and injured three, his victims were mostly African Americans. On May 24, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos shot and killed 19 children and two adults at an elementary school in Yuvalda near San Antonio. It was the worst massacre in the US in ten years.
