“I commend President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder for reforming the policy that imposes severe mandatory sentences on nonviolent drug offenders who have no ties to gangs or organized crimes. Non-violent drug offenders are often better served by treatment and other options, freeing up law enforcement to focus their time and efforts on preventing violent crimes. These fairer sentencing guidelines must be coupled with consistent and meaningful punishment for those who commit the most violent crimes, which is why I continue to advocate for a three-year mandatory minimum for serious gun crimes."
