Making Progress on Gun Safety
After killings at Umpqua Community College, Clackamas Town Center, and Reynolds High School, it’s clear that Oregon needs to take stronger steps to protect our families, schools, and communities from gun violence. I am proud to have supported legislation to close background check loopholes and prevent domestic abusers from having guns, and I am ready to take the next step of passing additional safety measures.
Governor Brown, in partnership with advocates from around our state, has proposed several steps we can take in the coming year to reduce gun violence. I am ready to work with the Governor on those ideas, and I am honored that Oregonians for Gun Safety has endorsed my re-election effort.
We need to pull together as a state and pass sensible gun safety laws. It’s the right next step for Oregon families and communities.
