Hagan Statement on Proposals to Curb Gun Violence

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Greensboro, NC - U.S. Senator Kay Hagan released the following statement after the President outlined proposals to curb gun violence:

"We need to ensure that there are laws in place to prevent a tragedy like Sandy Hook from ever happening again. First and foremost, that will require a serious commonsense debate in Congress that looks at access to guns, access to mental health care and violent video games.

"While respecting the rights of responsible gun owners, I am committed to working with my Republican and Democratic colleagues toward a comprehensive approach that ensures our communities are safe.

"As I have said, I will look at any proposal with an open mind, including the President's proposals to make schools safer and grant law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crime."
