바이든, 치명적인 대량 총격 사건에 대한 총기 규제 법안 서명: 'Lives will be saved'

“시간이 본질이다. 생명이 구해질 것이다,” 바이든은 대국민 연설에서. “콜럼바인에서 샌디훅, 찰스턴까지, 올랜도, 라스베가스, 공원, 단계, 애틀랜타, 물소, Uvalde and for the shootings that happen every day in the streets. How many times have you heard that, ‘just do something, for God’s sake just do something’?”

“오늘, we did,” 그는 덧붙였다.

The House passed the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act Friday in a 234 -193 vote with 14 Republicans crossing party lines just one day after the Senate passed the legislation in a 65-33 vote Thursday night.

The newly-implemented law is an attempt to circumvent mass shootings that have plagued the U.S. for years.

HOUSE PASSES SWEEPING GUN CONTROL BILL AMID SERIES OF MASS SHOOTINGS

Two mass shootings that occurred within a week of each other in Buffalo, New York and Uvalde, Texas left dozens dead last month.

그만큼 Senate then launched negotiations 중에서 10 Senate Republicans and 10 Senate Democrats to pass gun control reform and address gun violence across the U.S.

Though the push was largely opposed by Republicans in the House, including by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell championed the legislation and said itwill help make these horrifying incidents less likely while fully upholding the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

The newest law will incentivize states to pass red flag laws and expand background checks for 18- to 21-year-olds.

SENATE PASSES BIPARTISAN GUN CONTOL BILL

The Uvalde shooting, 죽인 19 children ages nine to 11 along with two teachers, and the Buffalo shooting, which has been deemed a hate-crime-fueled attack that left 10 dead and three wounded, were both carried out by 18-year-old men.

Lawmakers have encouraged states to release previously sealed juvenile records, which could potentially add several days to the waiting period before a gun purchase can be completed.

But even with the new gun control measures, it remains unclear if the two most recent mass shootings could have been prevented by the newest stipulations.

Both 18-year-old men legally purchased AR-15-style rifles and neither individual were flagged by existing red flag laws.

Wooden crosses are placed at a memorial dedicated to the victims of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School on June 3, 2022 in Uvalde, 텍사스. 19 students and two teachers were killed on May 24 after an 18-year-old gunman opened fire inside the school. Wakes and funerals for the 21 victims are scheduled throughout the week.

The newest provision calling on states to release juvenile records may have helped to flag Payton Gendron, the Buffalo shooter, who was evaluated for mental health concerns in 2021 but evaded any red flags.

The bill also provides funding for youth mental health programs.

This bill doesn’t do everything I want. It does include actions I’ve long called for that are going to save lives,” 바이든이 말했다. “I know there’s much more work to do. And I’m never going to give up.

But this is a monumental day,” 그는 덧붙였다.
