Gun reform bill passes US Senate – as Supreme Court blocks law limiting guns in public – Channel 4 News

The bill will bring tougher background checks for people under 21 buying guns and follows the mass shooting at a Texas school last month where an 18-year-old killed 19 students and two teachers.

The bill was attacked by far-right Republican Senator Marjorie Taylor Greene, who went on to have a bizarre argument with our Washington correspondent, Siobhan Kennedy.
