The gun violence epidemic has reached catastrophic levels. A lack of gun restrictions has caused a surge in hate crimes and mass killings affecting communities from every corner of the United States — including right here in Pittsburgh. The Second Amendment is not absolute.
Jerry plans to lead sweeping gun safety initiatives. He will fight to enact a federal assault weapons ban, limit the sale of large magazines, restrict the number of guns a person can stockpile, require universal gun registration and background checks, forbid sales to those under 21, and repeal and override concealed carry laws nationwide. As a constitutional law professor, Jerry will lead the national conversation on the Second Amendment and take aggressive steps to give Congress more power to regulate gun ownership and sales.
