What's in the bipartisan gun bill unveiled in the Senate

From CBS News | Politics by Melissa Quinn

A bipartisan group of senators on Tuesday released the legislative text of a plan to curb gun violence, which if passed by Congress would be the most significant update to the nation's firearms laws in nearly three decades.

Called the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, the measure is the Senate's response to a pair of mass shootings — one at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York, and the other at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas — that shocked the nation and spurred a group of senators to find consensus around a plan to reform gun laws.
