Issue Position: Gun Safety
I lost my father at the age of 24 to gun violence. I know what it's like to receive that devastating phone call that changes your life forever, so you'll never have to wonder where I stand on passing common-sense gun reform that will protect our children and our communities.
Gun violence is an epidemic in the United States. We must ban military-style assault weapons. We must close the gun show loophole. We must require universal background checks. We must prevent those with a history of domestic violence or terrorism from purchasing a gun. And we must prevent firearms from falling in the hands of people with mental illness. It's time.
