We work to further promote safety within our schools, homes, and communities by pushing the reform of current gun laws. At the statewide level, we see a need for legislation encouraging the safe storage of firearms, gun restraining orders and red flag laws, and increasing ease of access to resources against gun violence. We also seek the reform of Colorado Senate Bill 197 so that marital and residential status may not permit a perpetrator of domestic abuse to retain their firearms. At the federal level, we encourage a universal background check, harsher punishments for those who commit gun violence, setting a minimum age of twenty-one-years-old to possess a firearm, and research into gun violence through the elimination of the Dickey Amendment. GVSU has partnered with League of Women Voters in order to further our fight on gun reform.
