AUSTIN, Texas – Volunteers with the Texas chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a part of Everytown for Gun Safety, today applauded the defeat of several dangerous legislative policies including:
“We are grateful that our lawmakers have rejected a slate of dangerous policies that would have threatened public safety in Texas,” said Lisa Epstein, volunteer chapter leader with the Texas chapter of Moms Demand Action. “We know that our LTC system serves as a vital tool used by law enforcement to keep our neighborhoods safe. And it is common sense that guns have no place in sensitive areas including our children’s schools. Texas has a long and proud history of responsible gun ownership, and we will not jeopardize it by supporting legislation that would leave our communities and families even more vulnerable to the threat of gun violence. This session’s victories prove that gun sense is a winning issue in Texas, and we will continue to fight for the safety of our state.”
This legislative session, the Texas chapter of Moms Demand Action supported lawmakers and law enforcement officials in their successful efforts to defeat these dangerous gun bills by:
