WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) issued the following statement on President Biden’s executive actions to address gun violence:

“Today, President Biden called on Congress to pass legislation to protect Americans from gun violence, including my bill to protect victims of abuse by closing dangerous loopholes in the law and preventing abusive dating partners and convicted stalkers from buying a gun. Provisions based on my bill were included in legislation to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, which recently passed the House with bipartisan support, and I will continue to work with my colleagues to get the bill to President Biden’s desk. It is past time for Congress to implement meaningful reforms to address gun violence and protect communities across the country.”
