Merkley Slams Extremist Republicans for Putting the Gun Lobby ahead of the American People

Senator Merkley spoke about the need for commonsense gun safety reforms and the failure of extremist Republicans to act to protect the American people, rather than to line the pockets of the powerful gun lobby on Tuesday, April 18, 2023.

Senator Merkley supports common sense reforms including banning the sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and will continue to work in the Senate to get laws on the books that will protect our communities.
