Tom Malinowski on Gun Control



Regulate guns and ammunition to protect citizens

I support laws that allow family members, law enforcement officers, and other concerned individuals to petition a court to remove a person's firearms if they are acting in ways that suggest a risk to themselves or to others.

I support legislation that will prohibit the ownership of armor-piercing ammunition, in addition to existing legislation which prohibits its sale. I support a mandatory national five-day waiting period, before an individual can purchase a handgun.
