Kate Schroder (OH-01), "Gun Safety"

Every day, 100 Americans die from gun violence and hundreds more are injured. American women are 11 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than women in other developed countries. The growing rates of gun violence are a national security and public health issue. It should not be “normal” for my four-year old to have active shooter drills at his preschool. As a country, we can do better than this.

I firmly believe that we can support the second amendment, while also promoting responsible gun ownership and supporting common-sense efforts to reduce gun violence. I support mandatory background checks on all gun purchases, banning the sale of military style weapons, and pushing for ‘red flag’ laws that keep guns away from the most violent in our community. Finally, I will push Congress to restore funding to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to begin research into the causes and patterns around gun violence so that we will have the data on other ways to improve gun safety.
