All across the country, Democratic legislatures are stepping up to keep communities safe by passing common-sense gun safety reforms in the absence of federal action. This lies in sharp contrast to state Republicans, who are actively loosening gun safety measures, blocking popular reforms, and needlessly endangering our communities — like in Michigan, where Republicans just last year blocked popular gun safety reforms after mass shootings in Uvalde and just outside of Detroit.

Republicans won’t lift a finger to prevent gun violence, get dangerous weapons off the streets, and prevent more senseless deaths. The priorities of the two parties are crystal clear: Democrats are working to make our communities safer while Republicans are willing to ignore the country’s glaring gun violence problem to continue cashing checks from the gun lobby.”
