US Parliament passed the bill

A day after a growing number of shootings in the country were reported, the US Parliament on Wednesday passed a comprehensive gun control bill in response to the recent mass shootings in Buffalo, New York and Uvalde, Texas. The bill seeks to increase the age limit for purchase of semi-automatic rifles and prohibit the sale of magazines with a capacity of more than 15 bullets. The chances of the bill becoming law are almost nil as the Senate’s focus is on improving mental health programs, strengthening Social Security and increasing background checks.

The House bill would give Democratic lawmakers a chance to draft a policy for voters in November, where they can present their policies. The bill has been passed after the heart-wrenching testimonies of the victims and family members of the recent shootings in a House committee. Witnesses included an 11-year-old girl, Miah Cerillo, who smeared the blood of her dead classmate at the Elementary School in Uvalde to avoid being shot. House Leader Nancy Pelosi said: “It’s disgusting, it’s disgusting that our children are being forced to live in an environment of constant fear.”
