Supports common sense gun laws

I think closing all background check loopholes would be a great place to start. That is universally popular in this country. It makes so much obvious sense that it's hard to believe Congress has been unable to act on that. That goes to show you the power of the NRA. I would like to see the Centers for Disease Control have the ability to study gun violence, which they are prohibited from doing today.That again shows Congress' capture by a narrow interest group.

Restrict right to bear arms, according to CC survey.

O`Rourke supports the CC survey question on Second Amendment

The Christian Coalition Voter Guide inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Further Restrictions on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms' Christian Coalition's self-description: "Christian Voter Guide is a clearing-house for traditional, pro-family voter guides. We do not create voter guides, nor do we interview or endorse candidates."
