Jason Crow on Gun Control

 

 


Ban long gun sales to people in other states

Background checks have prevented over 2.4 million gun sales to felons, domestic abusers, and dangerously mentally ill individuals. I introduced legislation to close the "Colorado Loophole," which would prohibit the sale of long guns to residents from other states who could not buy them in their own home state, am vice chair of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, and was a proud supporter of H.R. 8 to expand background checks for all gun sales.

People demand action now, not NRA donations

Key messages: Crow's campaign ads focused on criticism of Mike Coffman and his response to school shootings, saying that he has accepted more money from the NRA than any other congressman. "We're angry about the fact that we now have politicians in this country who are more concerned about their donors....than they are about the cries and pleas of people in this community that demand action and demand it now."[3]
