Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee will hold a vote on a gun control package Thursday which includes six gun control measures that would not have prevented the Uvalde attack.
The package is titled the “Protecting Our Kids Act.”
Punchbowl News reports that the package contains eight gun controls. Six of those gun controls would not have prevented the Uvalde attack.
Nadler’s spokesman confirmed the list of bills the House Judiciary Committee will consider under the broader “Protecting Our Kids Act.” They include:
- The Raise the Age Act
- Prevent Gun Trafficking Act
- The Untraceable Firearms Act
- Ethan’s Law
- The Safe Guns, Safe Kids Act
- The Kimberly Vaughan Firearm Safety Storage Act
- Closing the Bump Stock Loophole Act
- The Keep Americans Safe Act
Those six include background checks for “ghost guns,” gun storage requirements for homes with minors present, additional penalties for gun trafficking and straw purchases, a bump stock ban, and a requirement that existing bump stocks be registered under the auspices of the National Firearms Act.
