Democrats Consider Scheduling Vote On ‘Controversial’ Gun Control Bill In Next Two Weeks, Report Says


The Biden administration is reportedly considering scheduling a “controversial” vote on a gun control bill in the next couple of weeks, news which comes as Biden demanded last month that Congress take action on cracking down on American’s Second Amendment rights. A report by Punchbowl News, which was founded by former Politico reporters, said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other House Democrats were focused on turning their attention to other issues that the Biden administration has on its agenda, including gun control, after they passed Biden’s “American Rescue Plan” last week. The report said that Democrats plan to “push through as much legislation as they can” over the next two weeks. “And Democrats may schedule another controversial vote that [time period] as well — legislation requiring universal background checks on gun sales (H.R. 8),” Punchbowl News reported. “Another bill would close the so-called ‘Charleston Loophole,’ which allows gun purchases to proceed if the background check isn’t completed in three business days. Both bills passed the House during the 116th Congress only to be blocked by Senate Republicans.”
