BBC News published this video item, entitled “Plan to strengthen gun control measure agreed by US senators – BBC News” – below is their description.
US campaigners have welcomed a potential cross-party deal on gun safety reforms but stressed the proposals do not go far enough.
The plans include tougher checks for buyers under the age of 21 and cracking down on illegal gun purchases.
They were announced by a cross-party group of US senators on Sunday. Crucially, the proposals are supported by 10 Republicans, meaning they have the numbers to be voted into law.
President Joe Biden also said the plans were “steps in the right direction” but they fell far short of what he and many Democrats have been calling for.BBC News YouTube Channel
