US Senate easily approves bipartisan gun violence bill, sends it to House

TRT World says US SENATORS advanced a bipartisan bill late Thursday addressing the epidemic of gun violence convulsing the country, approving a narrow package of new firearms restrictions and billions of dollars in mental health and school security funding.
