Congresswoman Duckworth Commends President Obama’s Firearm Safety Proposals

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–January 5, 2016.  After President Obama announced a series of steps he is taking to reduce firearm violence throughout the country and help make our communities safer, Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (IL-08) issued the following statement:

“Just five minutes after Illinoisans finished their countdowns and rang in the New Year, police received Chicago’s first report of gun violence. Two hours later, the city mourned its first shooting death of the year. It does not need to be this way, and the American people are demanding action to keep our children and communities safe from gun violence.

“The President’s new proposals are small steps toward where we ought to be, but he cannot enact meaningful firearm safety reforms on his own. We must not ignore these tragedies any longer—Congress must finally act in the best interests of the American people, close risky loopholes and pass legislation to keep these weapons out of the hands terrorists, criminals and the dangerously mentally ill.”
