US Senate passes gun safety bill as Supreme Court strikes down handgun limits
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A bipartisan package of modest gun safety measures passed the U.S. Senate on Thursday night, even as the Supreme Court broadly expanded gun rights by ruling that Americans have the right constitutional right to carry handguns in public in self-defence. The historic court ruling and Senate action on gun safety illustrates the deep division on guns in the United States, weeks after mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, in New York, killed more than 30 people, including 19 children. The Senate bill, passed 65 to 33, is the first major gun control legislation to pass in three decades, in a country with the highest number of guns per capita in the world. and the highest number of mass shootings per year among rich countries.
