Biography

Speaker Pelosi has a sterling record on gun violence prevention. In addition to her leadership as Speaker and her work to pass H.R. 8 and H.R. 1112, she brought to the floor the Violence Against Women (VAWA) Reauthorization, which for the first time, works to close the deadly “boyfriend loophole” by preventing people convicted of intimate partner violence and stalking from purchasing or possessing firearms. She voted against the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. She voted against the Firearms Manufacturers Protection Bill and the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), harmful legislation that shields the gun industry from accountability for fueling violence across the country. She has earned her F rating from the NRA, proudly.

“As elected officials, it is our duty to ensure our people are safe. Under my leadership, House Democrats have taken bold action to save lives and strengthen background checks by passing common-sense, bipartisan legislation that Americans from corner to corner of our country overwhelmingly support. It is an honor to receive the endorsement of the Brady Campaign.”
