U.S. Rep. Barber calls for Universal Background Checks

U.S. Rep. Ron Barber, a Democrat from CD-2, called for Universal Background Checks at a anti-gun rally sponsored by the City of Tucson and Moms Demand Action.

 

 

On Saturday organizers from "Moms Demand Action," political leaders and local residents filled the Midtown City Council Chamber all united for stronger gun control. Congressman Ron Barber talked about the loopholes in background checks.

"He or she could still buy one at a gun show, at a flea market, on the internet because no background checks are required," Barber said.

He went on to say, "We're going to keep fighting and we're going to keep fighting along with the Moms Demand Action and all of the other people in our country who believe this has to change."
