Washington, DC--(ENEWSPF)--January 5, 2016. After President Obama announced a series of steps he is taking to reduce firearm violence throughout the country and help make our communities safer, Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (IL-08) issued the following statement:
“Just five minutes after Illinoisans finished their countdowns and rang in the New Year, police received Chicago’s first report of gun violence. Two hours later, the city mourned its first shooting death of the year. It does not need to be this way, and the American people are demanding action to keep our children and communities safe from gun violence . . .
