Rep. Kelly reintroduces 3 gun violence prevention bills

U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill., has reintroduced before Congress three key gun violence prevention bills -- Recognizing Gun Violence as a Public Health Emergency, Keeping Guns from High Risk Individual Act and the Firearm Safety Act.

With a new administration and a new Senate, I believe we have a good chance to pass meaningful legislation,” said Kelly, who represents Homewood and Flossmoor in Congress.

Kelly’s efforts have the support of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. The bills were introduced during National Gun Violence Survivors Week, Feb. 1 through 7.
