Ending the Gun Violence Epidemic

The gun violence epidemic is a public health crisis that threatens the well-being communities large and small across the country. Earl is proud of his ‘F’ grade from the NRA. He supports comprehensive gun safety legislation to end the deadly cycle of gun violence. At a minimum, that includes:

Universal background checks for all gun purchases.

Banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that are unsafe in any public space.

Removing barriers to research on gun violence to allow us to fully understand the impact and implications of current policies.

Enforcing existing laws and stopping the gun lobby from undermining enforcement agencies.

Improving our mental health system to make it more accessible and available, enhancing our capacity to help individuals with mental illness.

Providing resources for first responders, schools, and public facilities personnel to deal with active-shooter situations.
