These are the 15 Republican senators who voted to pass federal gun safety legislation

Fifteen Republican senators on Thursday joined Democrats in voting to pass a bill to address gun violence, advancing the first major federal gun safety legislation in decades.

The measure will next go to the House of Representativeswhere Speaker Nancy Pelosi has promised to bring the legislation forward “eerste ding” — before it can go to President Joe Biden’s desk for his signature.
The Republicans who voted in support of the measure are the same ones who had voted to break a filibuster earlier Thursday. Those GOP senators are:
    1. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Senate minority leader
    2. Roy Blunt van Missouri
    3. Richard Burr van Noord-Carolina
    4. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia
    5. Bill Cassidy van Louisiana
    6. Susan Collins van Maine
    7. John Cornyn of Texas
    8. Joni Ernst of Iowa
    9. Lindsey Graham van Suid-Carolina
    10. Lisa Murkowski van Alaska
    11. Rob Portman of Ohio
    12. Mitt Romney van Utah
