Gun Safety Reform

Following the shocking massacre at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub, I called for a special session of the Florida Legislature to reform our gun laws.

My proposal: Ban gun sales in Florida to anyone on the “no fly” and terrorist watch lists. It’s a commonsense idea that enjoys broad support in Florida and across the country. It also could have potentially stopped the Pulse shooter from buying the weapon that allowed him to kill so many people.

Our call for reform immediately put us in the crosshairs of the Florida NRA:

“These ultra liberal, gun hating Democrats, should be ashamed.”
- NRA Florida lobbyist Marion Hammer

I’m not afraid of standing up to the gun lobby. In Congress, I’ll fight for commonsense gun safety reforms that respect Second Amendment rights while keeping guns out of dangerous hands. We owe it to the victims and survivors of the gun violence epidemic in our country.
