I invite you to become a co-sponsor of a bill that closes the gun show loophole. The United States experiences epidemic levels of gun violence, claiming over 30,000 lives annually, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition

violence, raises the likelihood of fatalities by those who intend to injure others and among those who attempt suicide, and places innocent children and young people at risk.
