(Washington, DC) — North Dakota representatives are reacting after the U.S. Senate passed sweeping gun reform legislation. The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act passed on Thursday night, would increase background checks and add funding for mental health, school safety, and crisis intervention programs. The bill was supported by 50 Democrats and 15 Republicans, not including Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer. Hoeven voted against the measure, while Cramer did not cast a vote. Both said they had concerns about Second Amendment infringements.
