Gun Violence Prevention

El Paso knows far too well the consequences of our nation’s growing gun violence epidemic. On August 3, 2019, a domestic terrorist killed 23 people and injured another 22.  
In the wake of the mass shootings that have shaken families across our country, it is clear we can do more to curb gun-related violence in our communities. I support common sense gun reforms such as closing the gun show loophole, requiring universal background checks, and banning assault weapons. In fact, one of the first bills I cosponsored was the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 which would provide universal background checks on gun sales. This bill passed the House in February 2019 and while the Senate still has not acted on the measure, I will keep fighting for more reforms that will ensure our kids have a future. Enough is enough.
