A bipartisan group of 20 Senators has created new gun control legislation.

A group of 10 Democrat and 10 Republican Senators has created a new piece of legislation that will take away guns from people who pose “threats” through red flag laws.

The red flag laws will essentially monitor a person’s activity on and off the internet to determine if a person’s behavior is showing signs of committing a crime with a gun.

The new piece of legislation will offer states incentives for issuing “red flag” laws.

So, it appears states that pass “red flag” laws will receive extra funds from Uncle Sam.

Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut shared these details on Twitter about the new piece of legislation.

The Washinton Times had more on the story:

Senate negotiators announced Sunday a bipartisan framework for new gun-control legislation after a spate of mass shootings created a heightened sense of urgency among lawmakers.

The lawmakers — 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats — said the proposed deal includes financial incentives for states that adopt “red flag” laws, more funding for school security, investments in mental health treatments and an expansion of the background check system to include youth felony records.

“Today, we are announcing a common-sense, bipartisan proposal to protect America’s children, keep our schools safe, and reduce the threat of violence across our country,” the lawmakers said in a statement. “Families are scared, and it is our duty to come together and get something done that will help restore their sense of safety and security in their communities.”

NBC News got the scoop too:

Key senators announced a framework agreement on new gun legislation Sunday, marking a breakthrough on a collection of measures to combat gun violence, including “red flag” laws and enhanced background checks on gun buyers.

The chief negotiators of the deal are Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., an outspoken proponent of gun safety laws, and Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, a firm Second Amendment advocate who has promised the new measures won’t affect the gun rights of law-abiding Americans. The final bill hasn’t been written yet, sources familiar with the negotiations said.

“Today, we are announcing a commonsense, bipartisan proposal to protect America’s children, keep our schools safe, and reduce the threat of violence across our country,” Murphy, Cornyn and other senators involved in the talks said in a joint statement. “Families are scared, and it is our duty to come together and get something done that will help restore their sense of safety and security in their communities.”

Unlike the series of gun bills authored by Democrats that passed the House last week, the Senate deal has a better chance of becoming law because it has support from key Republicans, who wield effective veto power over gun legislation in the Senate because of the 60-vote filibuster rule. The joint statement backing the deal was signed by 10 Democrats and 10 Republicans.

With already 10 Republican Senators sponsoring the bill, it appears the bill will pass the senate with ease.
