Everytown for Gun Safety Responds to White House Agenda on Guns

NEW YORK – Everytown for Gun Safety released the following statement today after the White House laid out President Trump’s agenda on guns on a conference call with media.

The proposals do not include important priorities like expanding the background check system to cover all commercial gun sales, closing the “boyfriend loophole” that protects domestic abusers, or increasing the age limit for buying rifles and shotguns, policies President Donald Trump had expressed support for during a televised meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers two weeks ago.

STATEMENT FROM JOHN FEINBLATT, PRESIDENT OF EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY:

“The White House plan is a complete failure of leadership. On gun safety, they shrug and pass the buck to the states. But when it comes to the NRA’s priorities, they’re happy to push for a federal mandate that guts state laws. Now Congress needs to get a backbone and meet the moment after Parkland, with or without the Administration.”
