Statement of Congressman Lynch on Senate Vote to Proceed with Gun Control Debate

Apr 11, 2013

“I am encouraged by today’s Senate vote to consider compromise gun control legislation, and I commend Senators Manchin and Toomey for their bipartisan amendment to expand background checks.  As the Senate moves forward on this debate, I continue to support common sense measures to reduce gun violence, and I am hopeful that House Republican Leadership will allow an up or down vote on this legislation.”
