Fighting Gun Violence & Corruption: A House Preview
January 18, 2019
This is going to be a huge week for the history books in the House of Representatives. H.R. 1 -will be presented “To Expand American’s access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money in politics, and strengthen ethics rules for public servants, and for other purposes.”http://www.congress.gov
Get ready for big changes as a result of enacting H.R. 1 of this exciting new legislative body we now have installed in the House of Representatives!
H.R. 8 will be exciting to witness as it is a bipartisan effort for Universal Background checks for the purchase of firearms. A legislative effort that has been a long time coming and with overwhelming popular support. Gun deaths in America are preventable which is why it is unacceptable for actions not to be taken to prevent them. Americans are 25 times more likely to be killed with guns than people in other developed nations. 97% of Americans support requiring a background check for all gun sales.
