They have little if no chance of becoming law….
House Democrats are poised to vote today on two bills that aim to expand the gun background check process, including the Bipartisan Background Checks Act (H.R. 8) which would expand the federal background check requirement to all firearms sales.
Both are enormous Democratic priorities that lawmakers and activists will use to only further drum up pressure across the Capitol to nix the filibuster once and for all.
These are bills the House has previously voted on. Last go around, Republicans had more luck in getting Democrats to squirm on certain amendments. And this time, Democrats won’t have to navigate a politically perilous vote before final passage like they did in 2019, when Dems overwhelmingly favored passing the background checks bill.
The House will also vote on the Enhanced Background Checks Act (H.R. 1446), which aims to close the “Charleston Loophole” by extending the initial background check review period from three days to “not fewer than 10 business days.”
Both bills are expected to pass the House with overwhelming Dem support — and little, if any, from the GOP. Then, the legislation will head to the Senate, where it is unlikely to get enough Republican support to become law….
I have come to see the issue as one of culture….
America IS a gun country….
The fact is there are MORE guns now then there every was…
This is AFTER the numerous mass shootings….
