WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate on Thursday night passed a bipartisan bill to address gun violence that amounts to the first major federal gun safety legislation in decades.

The bill passed in a 65-33 vote as some Republicans joined Democrats in support of the measure, marking a significant bipartisan breakthrough on one of the most contentious policy issues in the country.

The bill will next go to the House for a vote before it can be sent to President Joe Biden to be signed into law.
