What Is HR8? Gun Bill Focused On Background Checks Explained

HR8 is the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021, a bill that passed the U.S. House but has not yet been voted on in the Senate.

Calls to pass HR8 have been renewed after a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that killed at least 19 children and 2 adults.
