BISMARCK, N.D. — The North Dakota chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, today released the following statement after the North Dakota Senate voted to pass two dangerous gun bills:
“There is no good reason to roll back common-sense public safety laws, and the reasons not to are clear,” said Cheryl Biller, volunteer chapter leader with the North Dakota chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “Lawmakers should be working to protect and strengthen North Dakota’s culture of responsibility around gun ownership — not undermine it. We urge Gov. Burgum to consider the public safety impact of these bills — and to exercise his authority to prevent such dangerous proposals from becoming law.”
