Upton Issues Statement on Votes for Gun Safety Measures

Washington, June 9, 2022 | Jamal Ware (202-225-3761)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement after supporting a number of gun safety measures, 

“The Protect Our Kids Act and the Federal Extreme Risk Protection Order Act – also known as red flag laws – are commonsense bills that will make our communities safer without infringing on our 2nd Amendment Rights. While I don't agree with every provision, we can't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Now is the time to turn thoughts and prayers into action. I am encouraged that the Senate may come to a bipartisan agreement in the next couple days that can reach the President’s desk before the 4th of July."
