Thomas Brier (PA-10) Issue Statement

No American should ever walk into work, school, or a place of worship and fear being shot. At long last, it is time to end the epidemic of gun violence.

As your representative in Congress, I will promote and defend reasonable gun safety measures, including: reinstating the assault weapons ban, closing the gun show loophole, imposing restrictions on high-capacity firearm magazines, and implementing a universal background check system.

The Second Amendment deserves our respect. Let us show our respect by taking immediate action to end the tragedy of gun violence.

Debbie Wachspress (PA-01) Issue Statement

Gun manufacturers have been calling the shots for far too long in this country. Something is seriously wrong when kids have to fear going to school because of the risk of getting shot sitting in a classroom. Americans do not suffer with greater mental health issues than those in other developed nations but our levels of gun violence are out of control. Deb will fight to save lives without violating the Second Amendment. She will fight for universal background checks on all gun purchases. She supports outlawing weapons that are designed to fire large rounds of ammunition without having to reload purely for the purpose of maximizing body counts in the shortest period of time. These weapons capable of causing mass destruction such as the tragedy we witnessed in Las Vegas have no place on our streets pointed at innocent people and our police officers.
