Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer claimed America needed a vote on gun control rather than “thoughts and prayers.”

“They will be on the floor of the Senate, and we will see where everyone stands," Schumer said as per The Washington Times.

"A vote is needed, not thoughts and prayers."

His remarks come after the House passed H.R. 8, which is universal background check legislation.

The bill would expand retail point-of-sale background checks so as to cover private points-of-sale.

An individual who sells a 5-shot revolver to a lifelong neighbor would be criminalized unless that neighbor first undergoes a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) check, conducted by the FBI.

After the House vote, the bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.

The Times noted House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said, “If Republicans stand in the way, they will pay a price both morally and politically.”

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed Americans “overwhelmingly” support the Democrat-sponsored universal background check legislation.

Pelosi spoke prior to the House voting on the legislation, H.R. 8, aired by CSPAN.

She said:

"There is nobody in Congress whose political survival is more important than the survival of our children."

"Overwhelmingly, there is broad support for background checks legislation, so we hope with the big strong bipartisan vote we have today to send it over the Senate, the drumbeat across America, that the change will come."

Pelosi added:

“This legislation…will save lives.”

In February, a radical anti-Second Amendment group issued Biden a list of gun control policy demands carrying a hefty price tag of $1 billion in American taxpayers' money.
