About Don BeyerRead Press Release
Congressman Beyer has made gun violence prevention one of his top priorities. Congressman Beyer supports expanding background checks, repealing legislation which grants the gun industry legal immunity that no other industry enjoys, preventing stalkers and abusive dating partners from possessing firearms, and enabling the federal government to research gun violence. He also helped introduce legislation allowing the temporary removal of firearms from individuals in crisis—legislation that could have potentially prevented the mass shooting in Parkland. In December, he voted against dangerous concealed carry reciprocity legislation, protecting public safety by preventing potentially unlicensed, untrained individuals from carrying guns in more places.
