"Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act" 
 
Dear Friends,
 
Last week, I met with Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy who highlighted an unfortunate statistic: 40 percent of guns were purchased without a background check. I have made it one of my top priorities in Congress to end gun violence in cities like Chicago and to dry up dangerous criminals' access to illegal weapons.  Drug gangs like the Gangster Disciples exploit the loopholes in our current system, and they commit senseless acts of violence leading to the death of innocent people, like 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, shot and killed in gang crossfire. I invite you to that explains Senator Manchin (D-WV) and my bipartisan legislation, the Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act.  This bill will reduce gun violence across the US and save lives while defending law-abiding citizens' Second Amendment rights.
 
It is an honor to represent you in the United States Senate.
 
Very Truly Yours,
 
Mark Kirk
