Statement Regarding the Assault Weapons Ban Bill of 2013 - Tim Makris, Co-Founder, on Behalf of Sandy Hook Promise

We welcome the introduction of any and all proposals made with the intention of keeping our children safer. While we have not yet developed a consensus on any one particular approach or package of approaches, it is our hope that these initiatives will start a conversation in Congress and around the country on ways to reduce the incidence of gun violence and that Congress ultimately will act soon to keep our communities safe.
