CHICAGO (AP) - U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly of Chicago is recommending tougher federal laws to combat gun violence.

On Monday, the Democrat released her 2014 Kelly Report on Gun Violence in America. It includes recommendations to invest in smart gun technologies to prevent stolen guns from being used to commit crimes.

Kelly’s report also recommends expanding the list of those who are prohibited from owning guns to include people convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence charges or those subject to temporary restraining orders. She also wants to expand law enforcement’s ability to crack down on gun trafficking.

The report also recommends changing the law so that victims of gun violence can sue gun manufacturers the way that consumers can sue the makers of other products.
