2020 Legislative Agenda
Banning Ghost Guns
These do-it-yourself firearms can be built in the home, creating untraceable guns for use by anyone, and circumventing background checks that prevent criminals from owning a gun.
Regulating High Capacity Magazines
Limiting ammunition magazines to 10 rounds makes it harder for killers to commit mass murder and gives people critical seconds to flee or try to fight back.
Gun Control IS Constitutional
In 2008, District of Columbia v. Heller affirmed:
“the [Second Amendment] right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.”
