The House is scheduled to vote Friday on the most sweeping legislation designed to prevent gun violence in nearly 30 years after the Senate passed the bill Thursday night.

After the Senate passed the legislative package 65 to 33, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., applauded the "strong bipartisan vote" and said the House would immediately vote on the bill before lawmakers leave Washington for a two-week recess marking July Fourth.
