Lauren Underwood on Gun Control



Universal background checks; repeal Dickey Amendment

We absolutely need universal background checks for all gun sales, whether through federal licenses, over the internet, or through private exchanges. Individuals who have existing legal actions should not be permitted to purchase new firearms. We must be allowed to study this epidemic as the critical public health issue that it is -- and it's time to repeal the Dickey Amendment. This is a public safety issue of critical importance.
