Leahy, @SenatorCollins, And @SenatorDurbin Reintroduce Bipartisan Legislation To Combat Illegal Straw Purchasing And Firearms Trafficking

Gun violence plagues our nation. There’s already been 98 killings in DC this year. The police chief has blamed the spike on easy access to illegal guns. For too long, we have allowed criminals to obtain firearms through unregulated markets and traffickers. We must act.
I just reintroduced my firearms trafficking bill, with Senators Collins and Durbin, to provide critical tools to prosecute straw purchasers and gun traffickers. This bill received 58 votes in 2013. The Senate should pass this bipartisan first step without delay.
