This year, two shootings have taken the lives of Texans in El Paso and Odessa/Midland. We cannot stand idly by while the blood of our neighbors continues to be shed.
Join us as we ask Senator John Cornyn to introduce legislation to address the repeated gun violence plaguing our state -- specific bills which would enhance background checks, ban high-capacity magazines and pass a federal "red flag" law to prevent those deemed at risk to themselves or others from accessing firearms.
Senator John Cornyn:
As residents, voters, and faith leaders we call on you as a Senior Senator representing Texas to ensure that the Senate votes on legislation that addresses the repeated gun violence plaguing our communities. HR8 and HR112 have already passed in the house. We ask you to bring these bills to the Senate for a vote, including the ones below once they pass the house:
- Enhance background checks (HR 1112 & HR 8);
- Restrict high-capacity magazines (HR 1186);
- Pass a federal “red flag” law to prevent those deemed a risk to themselves or others from accessing firearms (HR 1236).
