Gun Violence Prevention

It’s time to stand up to the NRA and fight back against complacency on gun violence prevention to make our communities safer. As a survivor of the 2011 Tucson shooting that killed 6 and injured 13, I know firsthand the consequences of failing to stop the epidemic of gun violence in our county. After surviving the shooting, I became a national leader calling for common-sense gun safety reforms like universal background checks. I want to bring the perspective of a survivor to Congress and to deliver tangible results like closing the gun show loophole and passing red flag laws to make it harder for people who should not have access to guns to not have them.
