President Biden on Saturday signed into law the first major federal gun grab in three decades, days after a decision he condemned by the Supreme Court expanding firearm owners’ rights.
“God willing, it’s going to save a lot of lives,” Biden said at the White House after signing the bill with his wife Jill by his side.
The bipartisan bill came together just weeks after mass shootings in Uvalde and Buffalo that killed more than 30 people, including 19 children at an elementary school.
However, the new law would have done nothing to prevent the mass shootings.
Meanwhile, law-abiding gun owners fear states could abuse red flag laws to strip gun owners of their weapons.
Here are the 14 House Republicans who voted for the bill:
1. Liz Cheney of Wyoming
2. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois
3. Tom Rice of South Carolina
4. John Katko of New York
5. Maria Salazar of Florida
6. Chris Jacobs of New York
7. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania
8. Peter Meijer of Michigan
9. Fred Upton of Michigan
10. Tony Gonzales of Texas
11. Steve Chabot of Ohio
12. Mike Turner of Ohio
13. David Joyce of Ohio
14. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio
