The men and women who serve in our armed forces understand sacrifice. They understand partnership. And, they understand the responsibility required to own and handle a firearm. Rep. Rose, a U.S. Army veteran who served in the War in Afghanistan who was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and a Purple Heart, has proven that. During his time in Congress, he has shown these qualities, working tirelessly on behalf of their constituents and across the aisle to address gun violence in their districts and across our country. Rep. Rose understands that we need common-sense reforms to keep weapons out of the hands of those who cannot responsibly use them and to keep weapons of war out of our communities.
