The House on Monday gave final passage to the four bills, which:
• Limit gun magazines to 15 rounds.
• Require background checks for all gun transactions.
• Ban concealed weapons on college campuses.
• Impose a fee for gun buyers to cover the cost of their background checks.
Democrats hold a 37-28 majority in the House — where 33 votes are needed for passage — but only one of the bills, the universal background check, passed with a margin close to the Democrats' majority.
In the Senate, the numbers are closer. Democrats hold a 20-15 advantage and need 18 votes for passage.
