Chris believes that every American deserves the right to live without fear of gun violence in their communities. That’s why he is one of the strongest, most influential voices in the Senate for gun safety legislation.
Chris has shown time and again that he’s not afraid to stand up to the NRA, and he has been a champion for universal background checks, bills to keep guns out of the hands of stalkers and domestic abusers, and legislation to keep weapons of war out of our communities.
Chris has also led meaningful efforts to pass commonsense gun safety reforms in the face of inaction from Senate Republicans and President Trump. He’s the author of a bipartisan bill to ensure that local law enforcement authorities are notified when someone who’s prohibited from buying a gun tries to purchase one anyway, and he’s been able to move that bill forward with bipartisan support.
