The Senate’s budget committee sent to the full Senate on Thursday a bill that would ban guns of 50-caliber or more. Other bills would force state pension funds to divest from companies that make assault weapons for consumers and would require submission of some mental-health records to the national background check system.

Two more bills would allow authorities to impound cars involved in gun crimes and change the state’s gun permit system.

The votes fell mostly along party lines with support from Democrats and opposition from Republicans.

A bill to punish gun dealers who knowingly sell to people who intend to commit crimes was moved unanimously.

The Assembly passed 22 gun laws in February.
