The House passed bipartisan gun-safety legislation Friday, sending it to President Joe Biden to be signed into law.

The bill, considered the most significant move on guns in 30 years, follows massacres last month in Uvalde, Texas and Buffalo, New York. The vote was 234-193, with 14 Republicans voting with Democrats despite pressure from House GOP leaders to oppose it.
