MADISON – The following is a statement from Senator Chris Larson (D-Milwaukee) regarding Congresswomen Moore’s effort to end the gun violence plaguing our nation.

“Earlier this week, I shared the frustration and anger of countless Americans at yet another rejected effort to reduce gun violence. Today, I am proud of U.S. Congresswomen Gwen Moore, taking to the floor of House chambers to demand action. Congresswomen Moore, along with her Democratic colleagues in Congress, understand that our weak gun laws and policy inaction come at the cost of the lives of innocent Americans.

“It’s past the time that we need to reject the influence of the corporate gun lobby and make sensible laws that better protect our communities. Each day that we prioritize corporate gun profits over public safety allows additional tragedies.

“I applaud Congresswoman Moore and others who are willing to do whatever it takes to end the epidemic of gun violence in America.”

One thought on “Thanks Congresswoman Moore for her Leadership”

  1. Amazing efforts are being conducted to create common laws for gun control.
    We need clarity of what is allowed tiday for the public to become aware how liberal the gun laws are today.
    The majority of the public would be shocked of the liberalism.
    Then a list of the government representives who support the liberalism of gun control should be posted.
    The public would recognize who is representing the safety of the public and vote.
    Why does the public need machine guns?
    Why is there so little concern who can buy guns ?
    Why is there limited follow up on background checks.?
    Why is the promotion of gun sales being aggressively supported ?
    Amazing. !!
