House to Vote on Major Gun Control Measures

The House of Representatives is set to vote on major gun control legislation for the first time in decades.

The Democrat-controlled lower chamber is expected to pass two measures that would strengthen background checks for all firearm sales.  The House will vote on the  Bipartisan Background Checks Act  on Wednesday.

That bill would require universal background checks and close a loophole for people who want to buy guns online and at gun shows.

It would also restrict the transfer of guns by people who aren't licensed dealers.  Of course, there are some exceptions for that rule, like if a spouse or domestic partner wants to give their significant other a firearm as a gift.  And on Thursday, the lower chamber is set to vote on the  Enhanced Background Checks Act .

That piece of legislation would extend the background check review period from three business days to 10.  If those two measures pass the House, they'll head to the Republican-led Senate, where they're likely to fail.

One  Republican senator  said that the upper chamber won't take up the bills.
