US Gun Laws: Biden Signs Bipartisan, Gun Safety Bill Into Law

US President Joe Biden signed a bipartisan gun safety bill into law, the first major federal gun reform in three decades, days after the supreme court expanded gun rights.

Biden said at the white house, this is a monumental day. God willing, it's going to save a lot of lives.

The supreme court on Thursday declared for the first time that the US Constitution protected an individual's right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense.

Gun control has long been a divisive issue in the nation with several attempts to put new controls on gun sales failing time after time.
