Bowser Calls for Gun Control Laws on Federal Level During Mayors’ Conference


D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser stated that the Congress should take action and pass gun control laws, while she attended the annual winter conference of mayors in the District.

“We know that we really need the Congress to act on a national policy for common-sense gun regulations,” Bowser said, according to WAMU. “I want the Congress to be able to pass a sensible bill that protects us.”

Hundreds of mayors from around the U.S. joined the event on January 22 to discuss the issues in their communities, including gun violence, illegal guns and ghost guns.

Other mayors also voiced their concerns over the problem that has been plaguing the country for years, in addition to Bowser, saying that the Congress must deal with it in a more strict way.

D.C. saw the most murders in 2019 over the past 10 years, as 166 homicides went on the record.

In 2019, a total of 115 “ghost guns” were recovered by law enforcement officers in the city. The number was 25 in 2018 and only three the previous year.
