Summary of Grassley/Cruz Republican Substitute Senate Gun Bill - Embedded

By Susan Duclos

[Update  on senate vote below embedded summary]

Embedded below is the Republican alternative to the Senate gun bill being debated now, where the expanded background check amendment just failed to pass the Senate, falling short of the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster. List of which Senators voted Yea and Nay at this link.

It appears the Senate has rejected the Grassley Amendment as well with a vote of 52-48. Roll call here.
