Just received a communique from my Inside source at the White House.
Big update on plan to reduce gun violence
The U.S. Senate just took a big step toward reducing gun violence and making the country a safer place. This week, the Judiciary Committee voted to send to the Senate floor four different pieces of legislation that:
- Require background checks for all gun sales;
- Create new federal offenses for gun trafficking;
- Ban military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition; and
- Strengthen safety at schools.
There’s a lot more work to do — even for this legislation to get a vote.
But this is a major step forward.
You’ve already expressed an interest in this policy discussion, and we’re sure you know other folks who are following this debate. Regardless of where you come down on these specific proposals, we’re all united in the ultimate goal — reducing the amount of gun violence in this country and making America a safer place for our kids.
Will you help to make sure that everyone has the latest information by forwarding this message along?
P.S. — The Vice President talked more about where we are in this fight in a new feature we’ve just put on the White House website. Check out Being Biden.
Ohhh God…. “Being Biden”? Is THAT the solution here? Because all the other ‘solutions’ listed are feel good non-starters.
