Guns & Gun Safety
I don’t want to take away everybody’s guns. That’s just silly. My uncle taught me to shoot, and I took my first gun safety class at nine years old. In ROTC basic training, I earned a sharpshooter award with the M16-A1 rifle. But in high school, I lost a good friend because someone was playing with a gun at a party. I miss my friend Robbie, and I don’t want other kids to be killed like he was. No parent does. That’s why I support sensible reform of our current system.
I support a national background check system that disqualifies a person from owning a gun if:
They have been convicted of a violent misdemeanor or felony
They are on a no-fly list
They have been charged with domestic abuse or violence
They have documented and untreated mental health issues
They are under the age of 21
