Congresswoman Betty McCollum

Representing the 4th District of Minnesota

McCollum Statement on President Obama's Gun Violence Prevention Actions

January 5, 2016
Press Release

"I support President Obama doing everything within the power of his office to keep the American people safe by keeping guns out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them. Our country is facing an epidemic of gun violence and something must be done. This Republican Congress is ignoring this crisis and forced the President to act.

Taking all the steps necessary to combat gun violence demands Congressional action.  Responsible gun owners and policy makers need to work together to put a bill on President Obama’s desk that will keep American families and communities safe from gun violence."
