 U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona promised Wednesday the bipartisan gun bill she helped author that will likely be signed into law will not take away rights from Arizonans.

Sinema, speaking on the Senate floor, said her commitment to maintaining gun rights while responding appropriately to recent mass shootings in Texas and New York comes from her background as the sister of a police officer and growing up in a family of gun owners.

“I know how fundamental the Second Amendment is to families across Arizona,” Sinema, a Democrat, said. “Arizonans have a constitutional right to bear and keep arms and that right will not be infringed upon.”

The 80-page bipartisan bill would toughen background checks for the youngest firearms buyers, require more sellers to conduct background checks and beef up penalties on gun traffickers.
