by Kolkata Today

United States President Joe Biden signed into law the first major federal gun safety legislation passed in decades, marking a significant bipartisan breakthrough on one of the most contentious policy issues in Washington.

After signing the bill at white House, Biden said that God willing, its going to save a lot of lives.

The legislation came together in the aftermath of recent mass shootings at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school and a Buffalo, New York, supermarket that was in a predominantly Black neighborhood.
The house on Friday passed the bill by 234-193, including 14 Republicans voting with Democrats.

The Senate passed the bill in a late-night vote on Thursday.
The new law enhances background checks on young gun buyers between 18 and 21 years of age.

It encourages states to develop more and better red flag laws that would deny guns to people who are deemed to be dangerous.Gun rights groups still protested the final product.

in a tweet ,President Joe Biden said ,”I just signed into law the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. While this bill doesn’t do everything I want it to, it does include actions that I’ve long called for that will save lives.

Today, we acted for the families that have lost their souls to an epidemic of gun violence.”
