Advancing Gun Safety Reform
Inaction from our political leaders in confronting the epidemic of gun violence must not be tolerated. Supporting the Second Amendment does not preclude robust background checks and limits on the purchase of dangerous weapons. Congress and state legislatures must strengthen and adopt gun-safety measures involving semi-automatic firearms, bump stocks, silencers, high-capacity ammunition clips and “cop-killer” bullets. Legislatures must pass common sense laws ensuring that guns do not end up in the hands of children, criminals and others unfit to bear weapons responsibly. JDCA is calling on Congress to take immediate action including, but not limited to, passing universal background checks; banning assault and semi-automatic weapons and prohibiting large-capacity magazines; blocking people with dangerous histories from having guns; prohibiting individuals convicted of hate crimes from purchasing guns; and enacting stronger waiting periods between purchases and possession.
