Biden Signs Bipartisan Gun Bill Into Law

WASHINGTON — President Biden signed into law on Saturday a bipartisan gun law intended to prevent dangerous people from accessing firearms and investing in mental health across the country, and a years-long stalemate over whether or not to tighten gun laws. break the country.

Mr. Biden signed the bill a day after it was passed by the House and two days after it was passed by the Senate, where a small bipartisan group of senators struggled to reach a compromise that could break a Republican filibuster, a hurdle to any attempt to change gun laws.

The legislation was passed a month after a horrific mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, which killed 19 children and two teachers as the country was already reeling from a racist attack on a supermarket in Buffalo. And while Mr Biden acknowledged that the bill fell far short of the sweeping gun control measures he had urged, he noted that it contained some long-sought priorities.

“God willing,” said Mr. Biden, putting down his pen, “it will save many lives.”
