March 11, 2021

Today, after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 8, Rep. Lucy McBath’s bipartisan bill to require background checks for all gun sales, Scott Hogan, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia, released the following statement:

“H.R. 8 will literally save lives, and Georgia has Congresswoman Lucy McBath to thank for its passage. Her tireless advocacy for common-sense gun violence prevention laws has led us to this moment, with more Americans than ever before in support of background checks and Congress ready to consider meaningful gun safety legislation. And as deadly gun incidents rise during the pandemic, this legislation is even more timely and necessary. Georgia – and America – is lucky to have Lucy McBath at the forefront of these crucial efforts.”
