Ending Gun Violence

Senator Boxer spoke on the floor on the need to end the painful gun violence in our nation and better protect our children following the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. 

“There are certain things we need to do.  First, we have to take the weapons of war and high capacity clips off our streets.  Second, we have to  ensure that local law enforcement is involved in conceal and carry permits.  Third, we have to close the gun show loopholes so background checks are conducted.  Fourth, we have to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill and get them the help they need.  Five, we need to keep our schools safe by utilizing all of the law enforcement tools at our disposal.”
