Public Safety

From the gun violence crisis to the opioid epidemic, politicians have failed us. We can’t wait any longer to take action — when we say “enough is enough,” we mean it. Theresa won’t sit by or stay silent when it comes to saving lives, reducing crime and keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals. 

In the Senate, Theresa will fight for legislation that keeps our kids and our communities safe. Whether it’s working to expand background checks, funding critical gun violence research, keeping guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and other criminals, such as those on the No Fly list, she will bring people together to find commonsense solutions to ensure we address gun violence. 

Our communities in Iowa are also suffering at the hands of the opioid epidemic, and have seen a failure to act from Washington. Theresa is committed to working with community leaders to ensure they have the support they need to compassionately treat those who need help overcoming addiction.
