It’s unclear what exactly the House has been debating this week, but it is clear from a new report that the House will be moving on from its controversial gun control package.
The House on Tuesday voted on a bill that would make it easier for people to obtain guns, which could lead to fewer gun violence.
The bill also would make a provision that would allow gun owners to buy concealed carry permits without having to obtain a background check.
It is unclear whether this new bill would make the proposed changes.
The National Rifle Association did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
While many House Republicans support more gun control, some lawmakers are also opposed to a bill to expand background checks.
“This is a gun grab, not a commonsense gun safety measure,” Rep. Peter King (R-NY) told reporters.
“I think it’s an incredibly dangerous bill.”
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) also opposed the bill.
“If this bill passes the Senate and we do it with the House, then we’re going to have another Sandy Hook in this country,” he said.
“I think we should not be in the position where we have a country with two dead children in Newtown and we’re having to do this again.
That’s not how we are going to get it done.”
