WASHINGTON, D.C.– Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today released the following statement after votes on Democrats’ gun control legislation concluded for the week.
“In the wake of the tragedy in Uvalde, I believe there are meaningful, bipartisan steps we can take to save lives while also safeguarding constitutional rights. These steps include rigorously enforcing existing gun laws, increasing penalties for criminal gun offenses, requiring prosecutors to report when they fail to prosecute serious crimes, investing in school security, expanding information sharing between law enforcement agencies, and improving mental health care. Instead, the Democrats chose to block these broadly-supported, bipartisan solutions and embrace an unconstitutional and unworkable messaging bill that will not become law.”
