A group of 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats reached a deal on new gun control legislation Sunday.
The deal — being heralded as a “breakthrough” by various media outlets — will institute a number of provisions, including red flag laws and investments in mental health and school security, in hopes of preventing future gun violence.
In its current form, the deal is a tentative agreement. A final bill has yet to be written or brought to Congress.
However, with the support of at least 10 Republicans, the bill will likely have “sufficient support to move through the evenly divided chamber,” according to The New York Times.
Politico revealed the list of senators backing the deal. The following 10 Republicans were all on board:
- John Cornyn of Texas
- Thom Tillis of North Carolina
- Susan Collins of Maine
- Bill Cassidy of Louisiana
- Lindsey Graham of South Carolina
- Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania
- Roy Blunt of Missouri
- Richard Burr of North Carolina
- Rob Portman of Ohio
- Mitt Romney of Utah
Most notable among the plan’s gun control measures is a proposed measure that would introduce red flag laws.
