Mayor Lee’s Statement on President Obama’s Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence

Mayor Edwin M. Lee today issued the following statement regarding the President’s new executive actions to reduce gun violence and make communities safer:

“Senseless acts of gun violence against our children and our communities happen all too frequently, making it more important than ever to reduce gun violence and ensure every community is safe.

We stand with our President to say ‘enough is enough,’ and I applaud his dedication and unwavering focus on reducing gun violence in America.

With more background checks, increased access to mental health treatment to prevent violence and more investments in gun safety technology, the President’s actions will make our cities safer.

I will continue to strongly support Federal and State efforts to enhance gun control laws and do what we can locally to get guns off our streets and out of our homes with rigorous gun buy-back programs and by passing our own gun and ammunition control laws.”
