Issue Position: Cop Killer Guns

We should ban the Five-seveN handgun, a "cop-killer" weapon designed to penetrate the protective armor police officers wear to keep them safe. Despite being powerful enough to pierce a bulletproof vest from over 200 yards away, this gun is light and easily concealed, making it even more dangerous. To protect our officers, I will again join with Rep. Engel to introduce the Protect Law Enforcement Armor (PLEA) Act, which would ban the Five-seveN pistol and its ammunition. Congress passed armor-piercing ammunition bans in 1986 and 1994 to protect law enforcement from similar guns, and this bill would update these bans to include the Five-seveN handgun. Be assured that I will continue to fight to enact meaningful measures that keep guns off our streets and out of the hands of criminals.
