Combatting the gun violence epidemic and supporting survivors and families

Gun violence is a public health epidemic ravaging our Nation and disproportionately affecting our communities of color.  Senator Casey believes that we have an obligation to do everything that we can to combat this uniquely American problem, including passing commonsense measures to keep dangerous firearms out of the hands of dangerous people.  Those efforts should include universal background checks, limits on magazine size, and banning military-style assault weapons.  He also believes that we must increase our efforts to support the millions of gun violence survivors across our Nation who struggle to cope with the aftermath of this senseless violence.
