Senate Democrats are leading the fight in Harrisburg to address the serious gun violence problem that exists in Pennsylvania and across the country. Last week, we filed discharge resolutions intended to move anti-gun violence legislation to the floor of the State Senate for a vote. While Senate Republicans have moved bills that would make guns more accessible and make it harder for municipalities to address gun violence, bills from Senate Democrats that strengthen gun safety in the Commonwealth have been stalled in committee.
