House takes advantage of Dem majority to pass sweeping gun control bill

It doesn’t stand much chance with the Senate, or Trump

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday that would require a federal background check for all firearms purchases, including those between private citizens, according to NPR.

The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 passed 240-190. It is referred to as “bipartisan” because it has five Republican co-sponsors, and eight Republicans voted in favor of the bill in total.

Other Republicans, including Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw, said the law would not be effective in preventing illegal gun violence.

“This is fundamentally about whether we make policy that feels good, or actually does good,” Crenshaw said in an interview posted on the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action Twitter. “This new law makes some people feel good, but it’s not going to do any good. … This would only make it harder for law-abiding Americans to actually protect and defend themselves.”
