The bill will then be voted by the House of Representatives. If the bill is passed, it will become the most important gun control bill passed by the US Congress for at least a decade.
According to reports, Democrats in Congress said they would strengthen legislation to control firearms, including the restriction of high-capacity magazines, and temporarily confiscate guns held by high-risk users.
Judah, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said that in response to the "crisis of gun violence in the United States", it has long been a comprehensive investigation into the background of gun purchases. In 2017 alone, nearly 40,000 people in the United States died under the gun.
He said: "Our country is full of guns. The number of deaths is enough to explain this. It is too shameful."
On the 13th, the Judicial Committee held a 10-hour hearing before the vote. The two parties were heatedly debated. The Republicans proposed a number of amendments and they were all beaten back by the Democrats. On the evening of the 13th, when the Republicans were preparing to propose other amendments, Nadler decided to stop discussing and start voting.
Collins, the most senior Republican in the Judiciary Committee, and the Georgian Congressman, pointed out that Nadler’s approach was “disturbing” and was not conducive to the next two years of Congress.
He said, "If the chairman does this meeting, I am curious about what to do next." In addition, he also questioned whether the two parties can cooperate.
The Democrats of the House of Representatives pointed out that the Republicans had repeatedly delayed the voting on this bill because they opposed a comprehensive background investigation of the gunmen.
Florida Rep. Will Demins believes that a comprehensive background check on gun sales is common sense.
The New Democrats of the Democratic Party, Medelline Dean, pointed out that the legislators are well aware that background checks can effectively save lives, but they must fill the loopholes and prohibit private private buying and selling of firearms.
