Julie is a staunch and consistent proponent of strong and well-enforced gun safety laws. She is pleased to have received an “F” rating from the NRA and has never voted in favor of any pro-firearm legislation.

When the US Supreme Court upheld Highland Park’s assault weapons ban in 2016, Julie filed SB2130 to support that decision.

She has also introduced legislation directed at keeping guns out of the hands of people with mental illnesses, for the safety of both the public and the individual.
