In letters to Vice President Joe Biden and Mike Thompson (D-Calif.), chair of the House Democratic Caucus Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, Waxman said that in addition to background checks for gun and ammunition purchases, limiting the size of magazines, preventing straw purchases, and banning assault weapons, they should consider trigger locks and fingerprint recognition, public health research and mental health research and medical coverage.
Together, he said, they would provide "a comprehensive blueprint for action in tackling one of the nation's most pressing public health problems. I urge you and the Task Force to adopt them as part of your final report."
