Information on the President's proposal to
FIGHT GUN CRIME WITH A NEW NATIONAL
GUN ENFORCEMENT INITIATIVE
The overall crime rate in America has declined for over seven years in a row, the longest consecutive drop ever recorded. And it is down to its lowest point in 25 years. However, in his State of the Union address, the President announced new initiatives to build on this record and make our communities and families safer. Among those proposals is the National Gun Enforcement Initiative.
