“The cold-blooded killing of  Alison Parker and Adam Ward is heartbreaking. The problem of gun violence is not going away, and Congress cannot sit still" said Maloney. "This year we have had a steady stream of horrific reminders about the consequences of doing nothing. We must change the culture of guns and violence, and we need new laws for that to occur. It would be nice if the Republican majority would stop ignoring this issue, and at the very least schedule a hearing. We should all be partners in the effort to secure a safer society, where innocent lives are not stolen away for the sake of preserving unfettered access to murder weapons.”

Rep. Maloney recently issued a Fact Sheet detailing the gun lobby's obstruction of existing gun laws.
