House Democrats to introduce gun background check bill next week
House Democrats are wasting no time in pushing their gun agenda and plan on Tuesday to introduce a proposal to require universal background checks for gun purchases.
Under the plan, federal background checks will be required for all gun sales, including private transactions. A few exemptions will apply, such as transfers between family members or the "temporary use of a gun for hunting," Politico reported. According to gun control activists, about one-fifth or more of gun sales do not include background checks.
