(Washington, DC) -- The National Rifle Association is taking aim at a bipartisan gun safety bill the Senate voted to advance Tuesday.

The bill would beef up background check requirements for buyers under 21 and provide state funding for red flag laws. The bill would also provide billions of dollars for expanded community mental health programs.

In an online release Tuesday, the NRA said the legislation "can be abused to restrict lawful gun purchases and infringe upon the rights of law-abiding Americans."
