People who have a history of violence should not be able to buy a firearm. People who have committed a violent crime should not own a firearm. People who have been abusive to their partners, children, or other family members should not own a firearm. People who have history of mental illness and who are likely to do harm to themselves and others should not own firearms.
Additionally, our country needs to start seriously investigating the root causes of gun violence. In 2013, President Obama issued an executive order calling for the CDC to resume studying the causes of gun violence. Three years later, those studies have not resumed due to a lack of funding.
As an ardent supporter of the Second Amendment, I will oppose all efforts to restrict our gun rights. I am a concealed carry permit holder and a proud gun owner. As your Representative in Congress, you can count on me to vigilantly protect and defend your Second Amendment rights and all of our other rights enshrined in the Constitution. I refuse to compromise away our fundamental rights as citizens.
