State of Utah Archives: on Gun Control
Ridiculous to have guns at school in case of bears
Drew also scoffed at [Trump's Secretary of Education nominee] DeVos' argument that teachers need guns to defend classrooms from grizzly bears. "This is what you get in someone who has given millions of dollars to one party," he said.
The DeVos family has given an estimated $200 million to the Republican party.

More background checks; no guns to violent criminals
Currently background checks are required by federally licensed firearm retailers, but background checks are not required by private dealers, including at gun shows. We must ensure that there is a thorough background check completed at every point of
sale for every gun.
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.

Ardent supporter of the Second Amendment
Americans have a constitutional, fundamental, and individual right to keep and bear arms. I believe the Second Amendment is essential to the preservation of our American way of life and that it guarantees the protection of all the other freedoms listed
in the Bill of Rights. Furthermore, the Second Amendment preserves our ability to protect ourselves, our families, and our homes. Unfortunately, too many politicians are willing to infringe upon this right by making it more difficult for law-abiding
Americans to purchase and possess firearms.
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.

Proud gun owner; fight to keep that right protected
The second amendment is an individual right and SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. George Washington said: "Firearms are second only to the
Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth." Dan is a proud gun owner and will continue to fight to keep that right protected. He is honored to have the endorsement of the Gun Owners of America.
