The Senate passed a narrow bipartisan bill that could be the first gun control measure passed by Congress in nearly three decades, with a vote of 65 to 33 late Thursday.

Legislation as a result of negotiations between 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats that began after two mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, last month. Friday will mark a month since 19 children and two adults were killed at Robb Primary School in Uvalda.

“This bill is a compromise,” Sen. Chris Murphy, of Connecticut, who led the negotiations, said right before the vote began.

“He doesn’t do everything I want. But what we are doing will save thousands of lives without violating anyone’s Second Amendment rights.”

The legislation will encourage states to enact red flag laws and expand background checks for those aged 18 to 21, among other measures.

House leaders are expected to move quickly into consideration of the bill, with President Joe Biden urging Congress to pass it without delay.

The House of Representatives and the Senate are in a two-week recess July 4 after Friday.
