Los Angeles, CA – Today, Chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Janice Hahn will be among officials on the tarmac of Los Angeles International Airport to welcome President Joe Biden to Los Angeles. President Biden will visit Monterey Park where he will discuss new executive actions he is taking to address gun violence.
Supervisor Hahn released the following statement applauding the President’s executive order:
“Even while Congress refuses to act to pass the most basic gun violence prevention legislation, President Biden is doing everything in his power to save lives. He is focusing on the most effective tools we have right now, strengthening our background check system so that we can keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, and making our ‘red flag laws’ more effective so loved ones can be empowered to prevent tragedy when a gun owner becomes a danger to themselves or others.”
Supervisor Hahn recently took action to increase the effectiveness of red flag laws in Los Angeles County. Last week, the Board unanimously approved her motion to improve access to gun violence restraining orders. Read more here.
