Letter: We need gun violence prevention legislation

Posted

I have been moved to action by gun violence in our country and community. I lived in Germany for 13 years. Many of my friends are still there, and we never worried about our kids getting slaughtered in school, at the movies, grocery shopping or literally anywhere else.
I urge Gov. Polis, Rep. Titone and Sen. Danielson to support all gun violence prevention legislation in the Colorado legislature this year. Specifically, I would like to see:

  • Raising the minimum age to buy guns to 21
  • Universal 10 day waiting periods to buy guns
  • Ban assault weapons sales in Colorado
  • increase gun industry accountability and regulation of gun sellers
  • Make ghost guns illegal
  • Reform and expand ERPO/Red Flag laws

I thank my legislators for leadership in this area.
