Our schools, churches, movie theaters and concert venues are becoming targets for gun violence, and it is no longer enough to offer thoughts and prayers. We need change, and it is up to our elected officials to create it.
That's why I support sensible gun reforms. I want to close the loopholes on background checks to buy weapons and ban gun purchases for those who have a history of domestic violence, violent mental illness or animal abuse. We must restore the ban on those semiautomatic weapons that have been used in so many attacks, and get rid of the large capacity magazines and bump stocks that make it even easier to hit multiple victims so quickly.
I'm a hunter and a gun owner and I stand with most Americans who already support these commonsense changes in policy.
After reviewing the campaign's stance, I recently received the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction, acknowledging my support for real reform.
If my vision reflects your vision, won't you please volunteer or contribute to our campaign? Working together, our vision can become reality.
