Matt Lieberman: Time for talk has long since passed; gun legislation now

We are the only developed country to experience mass shootings at the frequency we do, and we must put an end to the gun violence epidemic in this country. I proudly support universal background checks and a ban on the civilian purchase of weapons of war. As a former teacher, it is the highest priority to me that we keep our kids safe. The time for talk has long since passed. We need action and legislation now.

Matt Lieberman: Ban sale of weapons of war

As a former teacher and head of a Georgia school, Matt shares America's frustration with Washington's failure to do anything to protect kids from guns. He supports a ban on the sale of weapons of war, like the AR-15. And he thinks Congress is long overdue to pass a real, meaningful, universal background check law to keep guns out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them.
