Pending Gun Bill Legislation

I am the Senior Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, where presently 3 different Democrat and 3 different Republican gun-related Bills have been referred.

The tragic events of last week once again highlight the need for a comprehensive evaluation of the underlying causes of such events. While it is easy for some to call for more restrictions to the 2nd Amendment, that alone is not the solution. If it was, Chicago, that has the toughest gun laws in the nation, would be the safest place in America rather than one of the most dangerous cities to live in.

Rather than dealing with numerous gun Bills that might offer a partial solution, we need comprehensive reform that reviews and addresses the status of our current mental health services, social and criminal justice reforms, and existing gun laws. Addressing one symptom while not addressing all the causes of this madness will do little to advert a future tragedy.

It is time for leaders in government at the local, state and federal levels to work together for the good of all our citizens instead of pandering to their political base.
