Schumer Targets 2nd Amendment, Promises Vote on Anti-Gun Bill


A piece of anti-gun legislation passed by the Democrat-majority House on Thursday will receive a vote in the Senate, according to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer. H.R. 8, which was sponsored by Democratic Rep. Mike Thompson of California, passed by a vote of 227-203 with eight Republicans voting in favor of it. Also known as the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021, the legalization will target firearms transfers between individuals that bypass the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System. The bill would essentially criminalize friends who trade guns back and forth — forcing them to go the FBI first for clearance and making their transfers criminal if they didn’t abide by the new regulation.
