Three strikes legislation has been delayed from being enacted into law until 2020 and will expire at the end of 2020, Breitbart News has learned.
The legislation was passed by Congress in December and was expected to take effect in March 2021, but a key provision in the legislation was delayed until after the 2020 elections.
Three strikes, also known as the ‘three strikes’ law, was meant to help reduce gun violence.

Three-strikes law in the US: Read more Three strikes laws have been enacted in the states of New York, Pennsylvania, California, Maryland and Texas.
The three-starts law in New York requires a felony conviction for the most serious crimes, while the state’s three-strike law requires a conviction of a first-time offender.
Under the latter law, a person convicted of a gun crime is eligible for a one-year sentence, but that time can be suspended if they complete a firearm safety course and pay fines.
The law also makes it a crime to possess or purchase a gun if the person is a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or stalking or if the offender has been convicted of any felony.
Under federal law, anyone who commits a third-strike crime is subject to a one year mandatory minimum sentence, and anyone who violates a federal gun law is subject a mandatory minimum of six months in prison.
