Cooper Statement on President's Gun Proposals

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) issued the following statement today in response to President Obama's proposals to reduce gun violence:

"The President is generally on the right track. We need background checks and we need to keep weapons of war off our streets and out of our schools and workplaces. Armor-piercing bullets and large-capacity magazines are also deeply troubling. We also need to do more to improve mental health and reduce violence in the media.

"Bottom line: We are obligated to defend the right to bear arms, while also doing a better job of keeping our children and our families safe."
