Senate Democratic Caucus Introduces Gun Reforms

Apr 13, 2018

This week members of the Senate Democratic Caucus introduced six bills making reforms to gun laws and school safety in response to the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Other states are also considering similar changes in the wake of February’s mass shooting.

  • $100 million in funding for schools to hire counselors, social workers, armed school officers, and for school security enhancements
  • Close the gun show loophole on universal background checks
  • Concealed carry would no longer be allowed on school grounds, with a few exceptions
  • Allow law enforcement to seize guns from a person who may be a danger to themselves or others

The legislation has been referred to the Senate Government Operations Committee for consideration.
