Control of guns in the United States Bill passed in the Senate

US Gun control bill: A bill was passed in the Senate to impose additional restrictions on the use of firearms in the United States.

With the permit for personal possession of firearms in the United States, there has been widespread demand for a restriction on the use of firearms in the wake of recent shootings there. At the same time, the notion that owning a firearm is an individual’s right is put aside.

Following this, a bill was introduced in the Senate imposing additional restrictions on the possession of firearms by civilians. There were 64 votes in favor of the bill and 34 against. The bill was subsequently passed.

Fourteen Republican senators voted in favor of the bill. The bill will then be put to a final vote over the weekend. The passage of the bill would bring in tougher background checks for buyers under the age of 21.

The National Rifle Association has opposed the bill. The first gun control law was passed in 1994. The law prohibits the use of high-powered firearms by the public.

But the law expired 10 years later. This is the first time since then that the gun control law has received this level of support from Republican and Democratic senators.
