Jennie Lou Leeder (TX-21) Issue Statement

We need commonsense gun law reform in our country. This includes closing the gun show and internet purchase loopholes, changing the legal age to 21 to purchase long guns, and making automatic weapons and bump stocks illegal. I would support the reinstatement of the Clinton Assault Weapon Ban. As a former teacher, I strongly oppose the president’s proposal to arm teachers. Our educators have a job to do, and that job does not include serving as an armed patrol. I do believe that we need community service officers on school campuses to increase campus safety and act as liaisons with vital service providers in the community.
