Deadly military assault rifles are being used to slaughter kids in schools and worshipers in church. Donald Trump takes $30 million in campaign contributions from the NRA, and promises he will “never, ever” let them down. And does absolutely nothing to restrict assault weapons.
His proposal to arm teachers will only make things worse. Saying the solution to guns in schools is MORE guns in schools is like saying the solution to lung cancer is cigarettes.
In Congress, I’ll take on Donald Trump and the NRA. Here’s what I’ll push for:
- Ban assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, bump stocks and silencers.
- Background checks on EVERY gun purchase, closing the loopholes for gun shows, internet sales and transfers to a “friend” or family.
- Hold gun manufacturers to the same legal standard as every other industry whose products negligently cause death – from cigarettes to cars to oil wells. Congress ridiculously granted gun manufacturers immunity in 2005, at the urging of the NRA.
I’m also proud to say that my campaign has been given the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction. When I’m in Congress, we will fight for the common sense gun safety reforms that millions of Americans are demanding.
