Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“The President has proposed a thoughtful, comprehensive approach to gun-safety rules, and these are exactly the common sense laws that we need as a city and a nation to help prevent the gun violence that too often plagues our communities.  People throughout the country are supportive of common sense laws that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and give law enforcement officials the tools they need to protect our children, our families and our neighborhoods.”
