1. Preventative Gun Safety Measures

80% of Americans support preventative gun safety measures.

The right to bear arms is deeply entrenched in American politics and culture. 32% of Americans own a gun while 44% live in a gun household.  A record 48,830 Americans died of gun-related injuries in 2021.  A third of the world’s mass shootings since 1966 have taken place in the US.   

Mandatory universal background checks, red flag laws and higher minimum age requirements are supported by nearly three-quarters of voters. They should be passed.

  1. Codifying Roe v Wade

60% of Americans agree with Roe v Wade.

In 2022, the Supreme Court overturned a constitutional right to abortion and returned the issue to the states, resulting in a patchwork of abortion bans and restrictions across the country. The right to reproductive healthcare should not depend on where someone lives. The vast majority of Americans agree with the precedent set by Roe vs Wade. 

Congress should codify the protections outlined under Roe, and guarantee equal access to abortion and reproductive healthcare – including in vitro fertilization – to all Americans.
