This past weekend, President Joe Biden signed a gun violence bill after the Supreme Court's ruling Thursday, struck down a New York law that would've restricted people's ability to carry concealed weapons. Although the bill doesn't cover everything that Democrats are longing for, like bans on assault-type weapons, it's a step forward as something like this has not happened in decades.
The bill will toughen background checks for the youngest gun buyers, keep firearms from more domestic violence offenders and help states put red flag laws to help make it easier for authorities to take weapons from people who seem dangerous. The bill also aims to help bolster mental health programs and aid schools with the $13 billion cost. Head to ABC 7 for more.
