Actually, this says we prioritize work in the states that will save the most lives. There hasn’t been an AWB bill to work on at the stage level, but since my book was finished in October, we’ve said publicly - and we’ve supported - federal legislation to ban assault weapons.

This bill didn’t come to fruition, but as you can see, we supported at the state level, too. @davidhogg111 @fred_guttenberg

Here we are working on it in Boulder, where I live..

And here we are on record in 2018.
