U.S. House passes new gun control bill after Uvalde

STORY: The bill, which passed 223 to 204, is highly unlikely to pass the Senate where it would require the votes of 10 Republicans.

Rather than pushing for a quick vote on the sweeping House bill, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has opted to give more time for the bipartisan negotiations.

The Senate negotiations, led by Democrat Chris Murphy and Republican John Cornyn, are also including measures such as upgrades to school security, strengthening mental health services and doing more to keep guns out of the hands of people who are legally barred from owning them, such as felons.
