    House Poised to Pass First Gun Control Bills in a Generation IlWna

    From The New York Times

    Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Catie Edmondson of The New York Times wrote:
    House Poised to Pass First Gun Control Bills in a Generation BBU8cQ2

    WASHINGTON — House Democrats are poised this week to adopt legislation requiring background checks for all gun purchasers, the first major expansion of gun control laws in a quarter century and the opening salvo in a broader drive to address an issue that once sharply divided the party.

    In back-to-back votes, the House will take up two separate background check measures. On Wednesday it will consider the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, which would require background checks for all firearm sales, including those sold at gun shows and online. On Thursday it will turn to the Enhanced Background Checks Act, which would extend the time allotted for the F.B.I. to conduct background checks.

    The action in the House reflects dramatic changes in the political climate over guns that culminated with last year’s midterm elections. A string of mass shootings, coupled with student-led activism after last year’s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., produced a wave of Democratic candidates — including some from Republican-leaning districts — who ran and won while calling for limits on access to guns.

    It's about time.

    I'm glad this is about to happen.  It needs to happen.  Gun violence has gone on long enough with thoughts and prayers as the only thing given by lawmakers, the President, etc.  This isn't about just schools.  This is schools, concerts, movie theaters and anywhere where gun violence and mass deaths have occurred.

    This should have happened a long time ago... like say... after COLUMBINE!

    Just Saying.
