House of Representatives passes gun bills related to background checks

DAYTON – The House of Representatives passed two pieces of legislation, mostly along party lines, to expand background checks on all commercial gun sales, on Thursday.

Congressman Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) voted against them.

“It goes after law-abiding gun owners. It goes after family exchanges in a way that is too burdensome,” Reed said.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal said “The principle should be no check, no sale.

Senate Democrats say they expect to see more bipartisan support when it hits the Senate floor.
