It is Time for Congress to Act
Today, I am proud to join my colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives to demand that the GOP bring sensible legislation to a vote that prevents gun violence in this country. The people of Washington’s 2nd District and the American people at large are demanding that we do something to address gun violence.
I am calling on Members on both sides of the aisle to work with me on gun violence prevention: to ban military-style assault weapons, lift the ban on federally funded research into the causes of gun violence, and strengthen our system of background checks.
These policies would not prevent every massacre but they would give law enforcement more tools to prevent killings, provide lawmakers with a better understanding of firearm-related homicide and suicide, and limit the amount of damage that maniacs who want to kill us can inflict.
No single law can prevent the actions of a madman, but there are actions we can take to save American lives today.
Enough is enough: it is time for Congress to act to more effectively prevent gun violence.
