JUST IN: Schumer proposes new bill of regulations following recent shootings
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Sunday he intends to introduce a bill restricting the sale of body armor when the Senate reconvenes in September, according to the New York Post.
The bill would require the FBI to establish standards for who is allowed to buy body armor such as bullet-resistant vests after a series of mass shootings in which the gunmen wore body armor, most recently the suspect in the killing of nine people last weekend in Dayton, Ohio.
The article goes on to state the following:
Schumer’s proposal would include exceptions for police and other public safety officials, according to the AP.
The ease with which those intent on doing evil are able to get advanced body armor is shocking.
In addition to the House-passed background checks bill, it’s time to require anyone seeking sophisticated body armor to get sign-off from the FBI. https://t.co/uK9edb4T9Y
