Janice Hahn on Gun Safety

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

As a Councilwoman, Janice Hahn has fought hard to curb gun violence by focusing on youth intervention, as well as efforts to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Following the senseless 2006 killing of 14-year old Cheryl Green in Harbor City, Janice partnered with Cheryl's mother to open an after-school center for local youth. In the City Council, she authored a resolution prohibiting gun ownership for gang members convicted of any crime, and she has stood up against NRA efforts to make handguns untraceable. Once in Congress, Janice will fight tirelessly to put smart limits on ammunition sales, enforce stricter permitting, and draw down the tragic epidemic of gun fatalities in our community.
