WASHINGTON – Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) issued the following statement after the Government Accountability Office released a study of U.S. efforts to disrupt gun smuggling.  
 
Gun violence and gun crimes are on everyone’s mind because of recent tragedies. This report by GAO shows that the set of crimes we ought to address includes smuggling and trafficking. The Grassley-Cruz legislation, which we’ll reintroduce soon, will do just that by creating new criminal offenses for traffickers with strong penalties for these wrongdoers that enable violence.”
