Amidst the gun violence cases rising in the US, the US sanate has passed a bipartisan bil, which would be the first major federal gun safety legislation in years.

The final vote was 65 to 33 with 15 Republicans joining Democrats in support of the measure, marking a significant bipartisan breakthrough on one of the most contentious policy issues in the country. The bill will next go to the House for a vote before it can be sent to President Joe Biden to be signed into law.

The bill was a big win to the democrats who have fought for it to be passed for so long, as it also addresses the age issues when a young fellow between the age of 18 and 21 goes to purchase a forearm.

The bipartisan gun deal includes millions of dollars for mental health, school safety, crisis intervention programs and incentives for states to include juvenile records in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
