UPDATE: Senators reach final agreement on arms control

Update: Senate votes 64-34 to pass gun control bill Tuesday night

Eleven Republicans joined the Democrats and bowed to their demands.

Republican Senators John Cornin of Texas, Tom Tillis and Richard Burr of North Carolina, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Rob Portman of Ohio, Mitt Romney of Utah and Pattaya Pennsylvania and Mitch McConnell of Kentucky have so far agreed to gun control legislation.

About a week after senators agreed to a framework resolution, Sen. Democrat Murphy told reporters a final agreement had been reached.

“Republicans have refused to include proposals in Tuesday’s compromise demanded by President Joe Biden and Democrats to ban assault weapons or raise the minimum age for their purchase, ban high-capacity magazines or require a background check on almost all sales. of weapons. – announced AP.

Sumer said he wanted the Senate to vote on the law this week before lawmakers begin a two-week Independence Day break.

AP reported:

Nine days after Senate negotiators agreed to a framework proposal – and 29 years since Congress last adopted a major measure to curb firearms – sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., Told reporters that a final agreement on the details of the proposal was ready.

Lawmakers are working to increase checks on the youngest buyers of firearms, require more sellers to carry out checks and increase penalties for arms traffickers. It will also pay money to states and communities aimed at improving school safety and mental health initiatives.

“I think we’ve reached an agreement,” Murphy said. “And we just put dots on I and intersect T right now. I think we are in good shape. “

Initially, senators did not say how they resolved the two main obstacles that delayed agreement on the legislative language of the plan.

One was how to make violent romantic partners subject to the existing ban that violent spouses face in obtaining weapons. The other was to provide federal aid to states that have “red flag” laws that make it easier to temporarily confiscate firearms from people considered dangerous, or to states that have programs to intervene in violence.

An ABC reporter asked Senator Cornin about gun control legislation and how it feels to be booed at the Texas GOP Congress.

Cornin said he did not mind being booed because he supported the rights of the people under the First Amendment.

But apparently Cornin does not support the rights of the Second Amendment.
