February 11, 2013 Speech

 

In 2012, our country suffered 16 mass shootings with 151 fatalities.  The brutal trend is a symptom of a larger problem: widespread gun violence.  All Members of Congress have a duty to their constituents to address specific legal loopholes that allow dangerous individuals to commit violent acts with guns. 

Throughout the 113th Congress, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (MN-04) will advocate for legislation aimed at making our communities safer while protecting the rights of responsible gun owners.
