Gun Violence Prevention

Every two days, three people are murdered by guns in Pennsylvania. Gun violence tragedies are an unacceptable threat to our public health, and we must do our part to improve neighborhood safety. Senator Haywood supports efforts to ensure dangerous people do not have access to guns. He has introduced SB701 to limit the purchase of handguns to one person per month. The senator is also sponsoring legislation that would implement fingerprint handgun licensing in Pennsylvania. According to the John Hopkins Center on Gun Policy and Research, states with similar legislation have lower firearm-related death rates than those without such laws.
