Not too much to ask!

Democrats reintroduce gun sale background check legislation
By Alex Gangitano - 03/02/21 10:02 AM EST

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) reintroduced legislation to expand federal background checks on all gun sales on Tuesday.

The Background Check Expansion Act is co-sponsored by 43 Senate Democrats, including Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), and would require unlicensed or private sellers to conduct a background check prior to transferring a firearm.

Rep. Mike Thompson (D-Calif.) reintroduced the companion legislation in the House on Tuesday.

Joe Biden and hundreds of congressional candidates from both parties ran on the issue of background checks. This is the year to get this bill passed into law. And this legislation has the chance to bring this country together even 85 percent of gun owners believe in expanding background checks, and a growing anti-gun violence movement, made up of both Democrats and Republicans, is demanding change, Murphy said in a press release.
