Justice Antonin Scalia is not a common advocate for federal oversight. However, he wrote, “the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited” as to allow firearm possession by felons or the mentally ill.

Numerous polls have shown overwhelming support for common-sense gun violence prevention measures that would make our families safer and protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners.

As a mother, wife and citizen, I urge our nation’s leaders to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.

I hope Sens. Harry Reid and Dean Heller will recognize the importance of requiring a mandatory criminal background check for every gun purchase and vote to pass meaningful gun reform.
