WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Congressmen Steny H. Hoyer, Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes, Kweisi Mfume, Anthony G.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jamie Raskin (MD-08) introduced two pieces of legislation to deter the transfer of firearms to dangerous individuals and the transfer of assault-style weapons. The State Access to Firearms Evading Revocation (SAFER) Act would prohibit the knowing return of firearms to individuals who have had their state license to possess or purchase firearms revoked or have had their firearms confiscated or removed by court order. The National Firearms Act (NFA) Modernization Act would modestly increase the tax paid to transfer weapons regulated by the NFA—including machine guns, short-barreled rifles and shotguns, and silencers—and funnel the additional revenue to federal gun violence prevention programs.
