Representative Sherrill Votes to Reduce Gun Violence

PARSIPPANY — Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill applauded the passage of H.R. 8, a bipartisan universal background checks bill, the first piece of legislation co-sponsored by the Congresswoman. The bipartisan measure closes a loophole in current law by requiring universal background checks for gun purchases, with specific exemptions for family transfers and recreational hunting.

“I constantly hear from residents throughout my community about the need for common sense action in Congress to reduce gun violence,” said Congresswoman Sherrill. “I’m incredibly proud that the first piece of legislation I co-sponsored passed with bipartisan support. As a veteran trained in firearms in the U.S. Navy, and a former federal prosecutor who worked to keep illegal guns off the streets of New Jersey, I know this bill is urgently needed.

“Now the Senate must vote and show the American people we can work together and pass bipartisan legislation – legislation that reflects the overwhelming support in this country for universal background checks.”

Congresswoman Sherrill is a member of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force.
