Janice Hahn on Gun Control

 


Focus on youth intervention & keeping guns from criminals

As a Councilwoman, Janice Hahn has fought hard to curb gun violence by focusing on youth intervention, as well as efforts to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Following the senseless 2006 killing of 14-year old Cheryl Green in Harbor City, Janice partnered with Cheryl's mother to open an after-school center for local youth. In the City Council, she authored a resolution prohibiting gun ownership for gang members convicted of any crime, and she has stood up against NRA efforts to make handguns untraceable. Once in Congress, Janice will fight tirelessly to put smart limits on ammunition sales, enforce stricter permitting, and draw down the tragic epidemic of gun fatalities in our community.

Stricter regulation on gun show firearm sales.

Hahn co-sponsored Latest Title: Gun Show Loophole Closing Act

Congressional Findings:

  1. approximately 5,200 traditional gun shows are held annually across the United States, attracting thousands of attendees per show and hundreds of Federal firearms licensees and unlicensed firearms sellers; and
  2. gun shows at which firearms are exhibited or offered for sale or exchange provide a convenient and centralized commercial location where criminals and other prohibited persons obtain firearms without background checks and without records that enable firearm tracing.

Congressional Summary:
The Gun Show Loophole Closing Act makes it unlawful for any person to operate a gun show unless such person:
  1. has attained 21 years of age;
  2. is not prohibited from transporting, shipping, or receiving firearms and has not violated any federal firearms requirements;
  3. has registered as a gun show operator and has provided a photograph and fingerprints;
  4. has not concealed material information nor made false statements in connection with a gun show operator registration; and
  5. notifies the Attorney General of the date, time, and duration of a gun show not later than 30 days before the commencement of such show and verifies the identity of each vendor at the gun show.
