SAVING LIVES AT THE STATE LEVEL

Giffords has achieved considerable success to date by building relationships and effecting change at the state and local levels. In the states, we are focused on staunchly defending background checks and other lifesaving legislation. We are adamantly supporting and passing new legislation to reduce gun violence, including laws that prevent domestic abusers from acquiring weapons and extreme risk protection order laws that empower families to temporarily remove firearms from loved ones experiencing a crisis.
