Dear Friend,

Today, on Valentine's Day, we give thanks for the loved ones in our lives. But February 14th also marks the anniversary of the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, making this day an occasion to also honor all the loved ones we have lost to gun violence.

Across America, too many people are dying, often in the prime of their lives. These are people with promise, with bright futures, with dreams, and with families and friends.

Sadly, Indianapolis is not immune. Earlier this month, our community was devastated when four promising young people were shot and killed. These tragedies have become far too frequent, but there is nothing normal about the level of gun violence our country is experiencing. 

It's clear that this epidemic is fueled by easy access to guns, and we must act quickly to keep these deadly weapons away from those who wish to use them to hurt others.

In the House, we are working hard to stop gun violence. We've passed bold legislation to help keep guns out of the wrong hands, like H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, and H.R. 1112, the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019. I'll continue urging the GOP-controlled Senate to bring these bills up for a vote, and I'll work with my colleagues here in the House to advance other common-sense measures. 

Ensuring the safety and well-being of our communities is one of our most important priorities. We must end gun violence to achieve this. I believe we can do that when we remain united in our fight to save lives. 

 

Your Friend,

André
