June 22, 2022

WASHINGTON – Senators John Cornyn (R-TX), Chris Murphy (D-CT), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and Thom Tillis (R-NC) released the following statement:

“Today, we finalized bipartisan, commonsense legislation to protect America’s children, keep our schools safe, and reduce the threat of violence across our country. Our legislation will save lives and will not infringe on any law-abiding American’s Second Amendment rights. We look forward to earning broad, bipartisan support and passing our commonsense legislation into law.”

The Senators’ Bipartisan Safer Communities Act is fully offset and follows their previously released bipartisan proposal supported by Senate leaders from both parties and a bipartisan group of 20 Senators. Text of the Senators’ legislation is available here.
