Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Dina Titus (NV-01) today released the following statement on the President's proposals to reduce gun violence: 

"Our nation has mourned the loss of too many innocent lives as a result of gun violence. In the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, now is the time to take meaningful action.

"I applaud the President's common sense reforms to our current laws, including universal background checks and stricter prosecution of gun-related crimes, as well as the pledge to improve the nation's mental health system. I also support renewing the ban on assault weapons and limiting the size of magazines.

"The President's proposals are an important first step to a larger dialogue that must take place in Congress and throughout our nation. I am hopeful that we can work together to enact reforms necessary to reduce gun violence in our country."
