“We have a deal”: US Senators reach agreement on gun safety reform
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy announced Sunday that a group of 20 Senators have reached an agreement on gun safety legislation.
“We have a deal,” Murphy (D-Conn.) wrote in a tweet. “Today a bipartisan group of 20 senators (10 D and 10 R) is announcing a breakthrough agreement on gun violence.”
The announcement comes after a rash of mass shootings in the United States has left communities grieving and Americans demanding change.
On May 14th, a white supremacist gunman opened fire in a Buffalo supermarket, killing ten. On June 1st, a gunman opened fire in a Tulsa, Oklahoma hospital building, killing four before shooting himself. And on May 24th, an 18-year-old gunman walked unabated into an elementary school in Uvalde, TX, killing 19 children and 2 teachers.
