House passes gun safety bill

The House passed a bipartisan bill on Friday to address gun violence that amounts to the first major federal gun safety legislation in decades.

The final tally was 234 to 193 with 14 Republicans voting with Democrats to approve the measure.

Now that the House has passed the bill, it will go to President Joe Biden to be signed into law, marking a significant bipartisan breakthrough on one of the most contentious policy issues in Washington. The Senate passed the bill in a late-night vote Thursday.

The measure includes millions of dollars for mental health, school safety, crisis intervention programs and incentives for states to include juvenile records in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

It also makes significant changes to the process when someone ages 18 to 21 goes to buy a firearm and closes the so-called boyfriend loophole, a victory for Democrats, who have long fought for that.
