Protect our communities and families from gun violence

It is long past time for gun safety measures to be enacted at the national level. 

 

Every single day, we are sacrificing 100 American lives to gun violence - and hundreds more are injured. This is a national epidemic that occurs every day across the country -- because Republicans and the corporate gun lobby have blocked progress. 

 

Americans overwhelmingly support gun safety, and I support background checks on all gun sales, a red flag law, closing the boyfriend loophole, and reinstating the assault weapons ban. The House of Representatives has passed background checks, so has New Mexico at the state level -- but we need to elect leaders who have the political will to get this done, because too many lives are at stake.
