Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday will introduce legislation to expand background checks on gun purchases to gun shows and online sales.
Schumer’s announcement follows pressure from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, which said it flooded Schumer’s office with more than 1,000 calls on Monday morning criticizing the lack of a bill.
“As the author of the [original] Brady law, Sen. Schumer, of course, agrees that there should be universal background checks,” spokesman Matt House told The Hill. “To avoid any misunderstanding, he will introduce his universal background check bill today.”
Schumer is generally seen as one of the strongest supporters of gun control in the Senate. But the Brady Campaign criticized him earlier on Monday for failing to fulfill his promise of holding a vote early this year on background check legislation.
