I support our Second Amendment, and I believe in an individual’s right to own firearms. However, I also believe personal responsibility for gun ownership and regulations meant to keep our nation’s citizens safe and keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. I support universal background checks, increased age limits for handguns, regulations on high capacity magazines, bump stocks, and silencers, and gun registration (just like vehicle registration). Too many of our legislators are afraid to stand up and make laws to keep people safe due to the influence of gun lobbying organizations like the NRA. I will always support legislation that creates a safe world for our nation’s children.
