(WASHINGTON, DC) – Representative Conor Lamb (PA-17) issued the following statement regarding House passage of H.R. 8:

"Today the House finally passed a law requiring background checks for all gun sales. Members of both parties came together to get this done. Tomorrow we'll pass another bipartisan bill to give law enforcement enough time to finish the background checks. The current time limit on background checks is too short, meaning that sometimes police can't finish the checks, and criminals are able to slip through the cracks."
