The conversation on gun rights has been handled the wrong way. The only way to make actual progress with this issue is by having a true bi-partisan discussion with both sides of the table.
It’s always one extreme or the other - I believe that the answer is somewhere in the middle.
I am a licensed gun owner. I don’t believe that punishing responsible gun ownership will benefit us. There are many different factors we need to consider - mental health, ease of access, background checks, preventable instances of gun violence, and much more.
In the coming months, I will be having many conversations about this subject with the residents of District 10 to discuss some of my ideas that I believe willhelp our nation move forward without damaging our identity, culture, and history. There is an answer out there - we just have to work together to find it.
It is not about who is right - it’s about what is right.
