After Ethan Song accidentally shot and killed himself at a friend’s house in January 2018, his mother, Kristin Song, found that activism was “the only way [she] could survive.” She’s since pushed for legislation, dubbed “Ethan’s Law,” which requires unloaded firearms be properly secured in homes with minors.
To require the safe storage of all firearms, whether loaded or unloaded, in a home with a minor under eighteen years of age.
To ensure that the sale of firearms be in adherence with requirements that firearms be marked with serial numbers and to close loopholes contributing to the illegal possession of firearms.
To ban firearms without serial numbers and require those manufactured or assembled by an individual be identifiable by a serial number or other unique marking.
To require an individual carrying a pistol or revolver to present the applicable permit upon request of a law enforcement officer.
To ban guns without serial numbers and regulate those which are sold in a form requiring the purchaser to finish assembly or that are homemade.
To increase the rate of the sales and use taxes on ammunition.
To keep children safe from gun violence, ensure greater responsibility by persons storing firearms and increase the opportunity for firearm safety education in public schools.
