Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

Gun Violence


Beatty's Pledge to Reduce Gun Violence

36,000 Americans are killed by guns every year: equivalent to the population of many Ohio cities. We as a nation have become numb to that statistic. We must do more to close loopholes and advance sensible gun reform legislation.

Highlights of Beatty Work to Address Gun Violence

  • Author of the Safer America for Everyone Right Now Act, or SAFER Now Act, which takes a comprehensive approach to the multifaceted problem of gun violence by incorporating a number of widely supported proposals that will keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people and take the most dangerous weapons out of circulation.
  • Supports the Bipartisan Background Checks Act to close background check loopholes. The bill represents the first meaningful gun violence prevention legislation to pass the House in a generation.
