Senate advances gun safeety bill

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.
