Today the House Judiciary Committee voted to advance legislation that would ban bump stocks. Bump stocks are an accessory for rifles that makes it act automatically by harnessing the energy of the kickback from firing the weapon. 

Unfortunately, the Judiciary Committee also voted down House Bill 1400, the universal background checks bill. This bill would have expanded background check requirements for the private sale of long guns.

Yesterday, the Committee passed historic gun violence prevention measures. The House Judiciary Committee voted to advance House Bill 2060, which requires those with protection from abuse orders to turn in their firearms within 24 hours. This measure is aimed at reducing fatalities from domestic violence by firearm.

The Committee also voted to advance House Bill 2227, which is known as an extreme risk protection order bill. This bill would give families members the tool to go to court to petition a judge to issue a temporary ban on access to firearms to a loved one in distress. This measure is aimed at reducing suicides by firearm.
