Supporting the Second Amendment and Common Sense Reform

We can reduce gun violence without infringing on the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Instead, I think we should focus on common sense laws that keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals. That’s why I support expanded background checks for gun purchases and a ban on high-capacity gun magazines. We can support the Second Amendment while also preventing guns from getting into the hands of criminals and those with dangerous mental conditions.

In the Assembly, I stood up to my own party and voted against the SAFE Act because it was a bad law. At the same time, I stand with more than 90% of Americans who support improving the badly broken gun background check system that currently allows dangerous individuals to get their hands on guns.

We must invest more in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to ensure those who are violently mentally ill, domestic abusers and people on the 'Do Not Fly List' aren't falling through the cracks and can’t get their hands on guns from the start. I agree with the Trump Administration's plan to tackle bump stocks and make sure action follows words. I have never and will never accept a dime of campaign contributions from the NRA. Special interests will never control me.
