Levin Statement on President Obama's Proposals to Curb Gun Violence


Location: Washington, DC

Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., made the following statement today after President Obama laid out his recommended proposal to curb gun violence:

"I strongly support the efforts President Obama outlined today to curb the gun violence that plagues our nation. I have long supported legislation to restore the ban on assault weapons. I also have supported closing the gun show loophole to strengthen the background checks that keep weapons out of the hands of criminals, terrorists, domestic abusers, and other dangerous individuals. I support our police agencies who have implored us to make these changes.

"The steps the president outlined today are important in protecting Americans while respecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners. The president is right. It's time for us to act, and Congress should do so."
