For Release: Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Washington, DC–In response to the Obama administration’s proposals to reduce gun violence in the United States, Violence Policy Center Executive Director Josh Sugarmann issued the following statement:

“The combination of improved and expanded background checks, effective bans on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, and stronger anti-trafficking laws will work together to prevent another Newtown and to stem the daily gun violence that tears apart too many families and communities.  Now the American public must join the fray to help the President pass the important legislative proposals he endorsed today.”
