The League of Women Voters of Massachusetts believes that curbing gun violence is a critical matter of public safety, public health, and public confidence. With each day that passes, more lives are lost to gun violence. We urge you to take swift action towards passage of this comprehensive firearms omnibus bill. Thank you.”
