Issue Position: Gun Safety
Debbie lost her father at the age of 24 to gun violence and understands firsthand the devastating impact gun violence has on our families and communities. Debbie will fight every day to prevent another mother or father, sister or brother, daughter or son from ever receiving the devastating news that a loved one has been taken too soon by gun violence. Gun violence is an epidemic in the United States, which is why Debbie will fight for common-sense gun safety legislation. We must close the gun show loophole by requiring universal background checks, prevent those with a history of domestic violence or terrorism from purchasing a gun, and prevent firearms from falling in the hands of the mentally ill.
