Friday night, the House passed a new gun control bill. 

Buying or selling a gun privately without a background check would be a misdemeanor under House Bill 8. While some Republicans say these bills are violating people’s rights, some Democrats argue it’s about keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. 

The proposal does not mention when a buyer and seller break the law. 

The bill passed the House Friday night and now heads to the Senate.
