Congresswoman Lee Issues Statement in Response to The President’s Gun Violence Prevention Plan

Written by  Rep. Barbara Lee | Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) issued the following statement in response to the President’s Plan to Protect our Children and our Communities by reducing Gun Violence.

“I am encouraged by the actions taken by President Obama today to protect our children and communities from gun violence.  However, there is much more work to be done in Congress and I will continue to fight for common sense solutions to the violence that plagues our nation and our communities. 

“Congress needs swiftly act to require background checks for all gun sales, reinstate the ban on high-capacity magazines, renew and strengthen the ban on assault weapons, improve mental health services and support comprehensive violence prevention efforts.  We also need a federal gun buy-back program and believe we must also enforce existing laws by investing in our law enforcement agencies to help get guns off the streets.”
