Reducing Gun Violence

Far too many times, we've seen senseless acts of gun violence. We all have stories that affected our communities and our lives. It's past time for action. We need to treat this epidemic like the public health crisis it is.

Congress must pass commonsense reforms to keep our communities safe, including legislation to: close the gun sales loophole and require background checks on all sales, prohibit the sale of military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines, remove barriers to gun violence research, increase the minimum buying age to 21, ensure better enforcement of current laws and regulations, and more.

Enough is enough. We demand action.

Here is my action plan to tackle this crisis head-on with actual solutions:


In this new 116th Congress (2019-2020), I've sponsored the following legislation:

  • H.R. 8 - Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019
  • H.R. 33 - Gun Trafficking Prohibition Act
  • H.R. 511 - Protecting Domestic Violence and Stalking Victims Act
  • H.R. 569 - Zero Tolerance for Domestic Abusers Act of 2019
  • H.R. 674 - Gun Violence Prevention Research Act of 2019 
  • H.R. 686 - Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2019
  • H.R. 869 - Undetectable Firearms Modernization Act


Congress has a responsibility to protect our families. Those Members who stay silent, refuse to take action, and block commonsense reforms are complicit in this carnage. They should not be in Congress.

My hope is that people across the nation will demand each person who serves in Congress demonstrates the courage to act. 

We know what will make a difference. We need to act now!
