“The gun lobby is deceptively cherry picking this statistic to imply that overall gun deaths are down. In fact, the opposite is true,” Patrick told Fox News, saying that only “unintentional gun deaths” decreased. “It is obvious that the gun lobby is using this statistic because it’s the only one they can use to support their bottom line—the bigger picture reveals a steadily growing gun violence epidemic and the gun lobby is desperate to distract citizens from the truth.”

Josh Horwitz Quoted in Washington Post

Josh Horwitz, executive director of the District-based Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, denounced Rubio’s bill, citing a rise in homicides in the city over the past two years. "It puts law enforcement in an untenable position," Horwitz said. "You need to make sure that the airport environment is secured.
