Twenty American senators, Republicans and Democrats, announced Sunday an agreement on several provisions to better regulate the use of firearms, minimal measures after recent killings that shocked the United States.

These measures, which require a supermajority to be approved in the Senate, include an encouragement for states to withdraw weapons from people deemed dangerous as well as others aimed at mental health and safety in schools, but do not include the essential to the reforms demanded by the Democrats and Joe Biden. The President of the United States, however, immediately hailed “advanced” insufficient butimportant”believing that it would be the text “most significant on gun control to pass in Congress in decades”.
