Senate advances gun safety bill, overcoming filibuster

The Senate advanced a bipartisan gun safety bill past the threat of a filibuster Thursday, setting up a final vote for later in the day or Friday on the furthest-reaching gun legislation that Congress has considered in decades.

The bill, a response to mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, N.Y., would enhance background checks for gun buyers younger than 21, provide money to administer red flag laws and crack down on straw purchasers.  

The measure advanced in a 65-34 vote. At least 60 votes were needed.

Those voting to advance the bill included Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who said he wanted to do something to respond to the shocking violence at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, where an 18-year-old gunman killed 19 children and two teachers.

Red Flag Laws will probably not pass Constitutional scrutiny.

They can violate:

1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 14 Amendments.

I guess we'll see.

There are like 100 murders a year in Sweden or something. They practically don't kill each other.

That would be like the US having only 3,500 murders a year instead of 17,000 or something.

I haven’t been murdered and also don’t know anyone that has. You know as many murdered Americans as I do. Do you have a driving need to do something about it? What do you suggest?

Hopefully it holds out. Also stop being obtuse, the problem is 'far right incels keep going off their rocker and shooting kids because the cheerleaders won't give it up to a guy who won't stop talking about how everything is the fault of reptilian jews and their space laser'

I see you ignore the Democrats killing each other each day in big cities.    That is what the left does.   Ignore what they control in a poor way.

Buddy, most gang shootings are over drugs, not political issues.

No, they're done by gangbangers. Gangbangers don't have a PAC.

They are on the left by a big majority.   Odd that the Left doesn't claim the criminals they love.

They aren't felons until they are caught and the left doesn't like to catch criminals.
