Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

Gun Violence


Beatty's Pledge to Reduce Gun Violence

Gun violence takes the lives of far too many Americans each year. By taking a comprehensive look at our current laws and policies regarding firearms and ammunition, along with examining illegal access and activity in this area, we can increase safety standards in our schools and communities and prevent future tragedies, all while upholding and ensuring law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment rights.
