Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) was among the Members of Congress calling for action on common sense gun legislation this week. 

Higgins is a cosponsor of the Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act (H.R. 1217), a bipartisan bill to expand the requirement for comprehensive background checks and increase funding for the national instant criminal background check system (NICS).  Higgins is also sponsoring, with Rep. Peter King (R-NY-2), the Detectives Nemorin, Andrews and Moore Anti-Gun Trafficking Act (H.R. 2374), which increases penalties associated with the sale of stolen firearms and establishes a national stolen gun check system available to firearms dealers.
