Schumer is hoping the influence of her cousin will help his proposals succeed where so many others failed.
Congress has not acted considerably in terms of gun control laws, but Sen. Charles Schumer. “I don’t know how else to say it”. And sticks. You are going to lose money if you don’t do this. “There is a way to stop them”. They want to encourage states to share more information with the federal background check system; figure out the best way to handle getting people suffering from mental illness involuntarily committed to psychiatric care; and give more money to treatment programs for mental illness and substance abuse.
Amy Schumer said at Monday’s press conference, “These shootings have got to stop”. The Schumers are teaming up to try and enact gun control regulations.
Comedian Amy Schumer issued an impassioned call for gun control legislation alongside her cousin, Sen.
The topic became personal for Schumer last month when 59-year-old Russell Houser allegedly shot and killed two people before turning the gun on himself during a showing of Schumer’s new movie “Trainwreck” in Lafayette, Louisiana. A Georgia judge ordered Houser detained for a mental evaluation in 2008 after relatives claimed he was risky.

Within hours of the Lafayette shooting, Amy Schumer tweeted that her “heart is broken”, adding, “all my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Louisiana”.
