Gun violence prevention
It is past time we act on gun violence.


Hillary has a record of advocating for commonsense approaches to reduce gun violence:

As first lady, she co-convened a White House Summit on School Violence after the Columbine tragedy. She also strongly defended the Brady Bill, which instituted federal background checks on some gun sales.

As senator, she co-sponsored and voted for legislation to close the gun show loophole
by requiring criminal background checks on all transactions taking place at events that sell firearms.

She voted against the dangerous immunity protections Congress provided gun dealers and manufacturers that prevent victims of gun violence from holding negligent manufacturers and dealers accountable.

She also co-sponsored and voted for legislation to extend and reinstate the assault weapons ban.

Hillary has never just "talked the talk"..
