New day for gun control

Updated 2/5/2019 5:05 PM

A new day is truly dawning with Democratic Party control of the US House. The House has now drafted H.R. 8 which will mandate universal background checks for gun purchases.

Finally Congress has a conscience again. Bogus sentiments of "thoughts and prayers" will now be replaced by concrete actions. With Democrats firmly in control, this bill will pass the House. Then we will see if the Senate and president care enough about gun violence victims to vote their way for a change.
