Gun Control

The right to bear arms is a Constitutional right for American citizens. I believe we must work to balance this Constitutional right with our obligation to keep our citizens and our communities safe. I support a ban on assault weapons and believe the gun-show loophole should be closed. We must use the technology available today to work to remove guns from the hands of criminals.
