Cincinnati, OH – Today, Congressman Greg Landsman (OH-01) released the following statement announcing he has joined the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force.

“Across the country, and right here in Southwest Ohio, too many guns are falling into the wrong hands, and the ease with which this happens has real, lasting, and deadly consequences,” said Congressman Landsman. “With illegal guns flooding our streets, law enforcement is overwhelmed, and every place can be the scene of a horrific shooting. Freedom includes so much: freedom from being shot in your school, on your campus, in a grocery store, at a parade, at a concert, in a club, in your home. Comprehensive background checks and banning weapons of war will save lives and make us more free. We have to pass both.”

“Gun violence must be a top priority for this Congress, and essential to this effort is the involvement of the new leaders in Congress,” said Task Force Chair Congressman Mike Thompson (CA-04). “I am thrilled to have Congressman Greg Landsman join the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. Greg will be a steadfast advocate for gun violence prevention and will help our Task Force push for commonsense gun violence prevention reform. He will be a great addition to the Task Force.”

The House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force is a bipartisan group of lawmakers working to find commonsense solutions to reduce gun violence in the United States. Formed in the aftermath of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the Task Force is comprised of more than 180 Members and has been instrumental in passing a number of gun violence prevention measures, including the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, increased funding for the national background checks system, and programs to break the cycle of violence.
