AAPI Victory Alliance on Biden’s Executive Order to Increase Gun Violence Prevention Efforts

WASHINGTON (March 14, 2023)  — Following President Biden’s Executive Order to increase gun violence prevention efforts and take new actions to reduce gun violence to make communities safer, AAPI Victory Alliance released the following statement:

AAPI Victory Alliance Executive Director Varun Nikore issued the following statement:

“On behalf of AAPI Victory Alliance, we applaud President Biden and his latest Executive Order calling for increased gun violence prevention efforts. In addition to keeping guns out of dangerous hands and holding the gun industry accountable, we are especially eager for the independent Federal Trade Commission to publish a report sharing insight into how gun manufacturers market firearms to minors and the rest of the civilian population.”

“The need for increased gun violence prevention and gun safety legislation grows more important each day. So we look forward to how these preventative measures positively impact our AAPI communities and aid in addressing our country’s gun violence epidemic.”

“According to polling done by the AAPI Victory Alliance with partners last year, gun violence and gun control are the top non-economic issues amongst our community. Our organization will hold organizations, elected officials, and corporations accountable for those that don’t protect the safety and wellbeing of our AAPI community.”
