Our communities and our youth are enduring gun violence as if it is an unsolvable crisis. It is preventable and we can end it. Marilyn passed mandatory background checks and closed the gun show loophole in Tacoma while she was Mayor. The gun lobby threatened to sue, and she was steadfast in her commitment to putting the safety and well being of residents first.
In Congress, Marilyn will stand up for common sense gun safety laws such as universal background checks for gun purchases and restoration of the ban on military style assault weapons and high capacity magazines. It should be harder, not easier, for criminals, domestic abusers, and terrorists to buy dangerous weapons.
