Statement of Support for Senators Toomey and Manchin Background Check Bill


 April 17, 2013

I applaud Senators Toomey and Manchin for their bipartisan leadership.  Lets be perfectly clear, this amendment is about keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.  This common-sense amendment will save lives, and will not infringe on any law abiding citizen’s right to possess firearms.  As the District Attorney of a city that sadly deals with illegal guns in the hands of criminals almost everyday, I urge the United States Senate to vote for this amendment today.
