House Democrats will introduce a bill next week that would require universal background checks for gun purchases.

The proposal will be introduced Tuesday, according to lawmakers, on the eighth anniversary of former Rep. Gabby Giffords’s (D-Ariz.) shooting.

The bill calls for federal background checks to be required on all gun sales, including private transactions, with an exception for transfers between family members and temporary use of a gun for hunting purposes.


I support this type of legislation.

I think the way to get it through the Senate is to attach the Hearing Protection Act of 2019.
