Compare the Records: Biden-Harris Actions to Reduce Gun Violence vs. Kemp’s “Criminal Carry”

July 13, 2022

The Biden-Harris administration this week was joined by families and survivors affected by gun violence, along with federal and local Georgia leaders, to celebrate the passage of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act – the most significant gun violence reduction legislation in the last 30 years. In contrast, Brian Kemp, whose own lieutenant governor broke ranks to call for action on gun safety, has doubled down on his dangerous new “criminal carry” law.

Take a look at how Kemp’s extreme record on gun violence stacks up against the Biden-Harris administration’s historic efforts to keep our communities safe:

Biden-Harris administration:

  • Secured passage of the most comprehensive legislation to reduce gun violence in 30 years.
  • Provided funding for crisis intervention and red flag laws.
  • Closed the so-called “boyfriend loophole.” 
  • Provided vital funding to address youth mental health, including the trauma experienced by gun violence survivors.
  • Continues to call on Congress to pass common sense reforms like enacting safe storage laws, expanding background checks, and banning assault rifles.
