CONGRESSMAN RICHARD E. NEAL CALLS FOR COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS TO GUN VIOLENCE
(SPRINGFIELD) Congressman Richard E. Neal released this statement following President Obama's proposal to reduce gun violence.

"I believe President Obama offered many common sense proposals to reducing gun violence. For example, background checks is something we should all agree upon. We can take many steps here to alleviate some of the wanton violence that occurs; this does not need to be an all or nothing conversation. When you consider the amount of senseless violence that occurs today, often times it is a rapid fire gun which is utilized. While I have no desire to take away rights from legitimate sportsmen or hunters, these measures are aimed at those who perpetuate violent crimes. As we have seen in Newtown and with my friend and former colleague Gabby Giffords, we know the danger when guns get into the wrong hands."
