WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, December 5, at 12 p.m. ET, in the U.S. Capitol, U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) will lead a press conference to discuss his newly introduced legislation, the Gas-Operated Semi-Automatic Firearms Exclusion Act (GOSAFE) Act. The GOSAFE Act is new, pragmatic legislation designed to protect communities from gun violence by regulating firearms based on the lethality of their internal mechanisms, as opposed to focusing on cosmetic features that manufacturers can easily modify.
Speakers also included Miranda Viscoli with New Mexicans for Gun Violence, Angela Ferrell-Zabala with Moms Demand Action and Everytown, and Aalayah Eastmond from Team Enough and Brady.
