WASHINGTON, D.C.- The house judiciary committee has passed a bill that would require background checks for all gun sales and most gun transfers in the United States.
That's according to the Washington Post, the committee debated the bill for more than 9 hours before advancing it Wednesday night.
The vote was 21 to 14.
The committee also voted to advance a bill that would close a loophole in the current background-check law.
It would stop a person from buying a gun if the check is not completed in three days.
