The White House praised House lawmakers after they voted on Wednesday to set the minimum age to buy semi-automatic weapons at 21 in response to a string of high-profile shootings.

In a late night tweet Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre expressed gratitude, writing:

“Thank you to @SpeakerPelosi & the House for passing bipartisan legislation to strengthen gun laws & protect children. Soon, the House will do more to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. We continue to work hard with both parties to save lives and stand up for families.”

The bill would also prohibit the sale of ammunition magazines with a capacity of more than 15 rounds.
