I support the right to keep and bear arms and am a responsible gun owner myself. I support restrictions on the sale of assault style weapons and personally see no positive use for them. I support strict gun laws including outright bans of certain assault style weapons, mandatory gun safety training, increasing minimum age requirements, required background checks, mandatory waiting periods, and safe storage requirements. I have lost a friend to gun violence and a most people that I know have been impacted by gun violence in some way. We need common-sense gun regulations that promote public safety first.
