Democrats to Introduce Bill Expanding Background Checks on Gun Sales

Posted: 01.08.19 11:17 AM

Democrats’ long-pledged*push to tighten the country’s gun laws*will*take center stage when lawmakers introduce legislation Tuesday aimed at expanding background checks on gun sales. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), Rep. Mike Thompson (D., Calif.), who leads a task force focused on reducing gun violence, and former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D., Ariz.) will officially unveil the legislation expanding background checks to more commercial sales and private transfers, with the goal of flagging people with criminal or mental-health histories that disqualify them from gun ownership. The legislation will expand background checks to*almost all commercial sales, including private*sales at gun shows,*as well as other transfers, with just narrow exemptions, according to people familiar with its text.*
