From her campaign website:
Common Sense Gun Safety Laws
Thoughts and prayers haven’t stopped the rampant gun violence in our country. We need meaningful action. I support Common Sense Gun Safety Laws to ensure our families are safe from those who intend to do us harm. That includes expanding background checks, closing gun show loopholes, banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, enacting a federal red flag law and implementing a national licensing program.
From her Twitter feed:
We never think it will happen in our neighborhood, until it does.
We can’t wait any longer for:
✅Universal background checks
✅Closing gun show loopholes
✅Assault weapon & high-capacity magazine ban
✅Federal red flag law
✅National licensing programhttps://t.co/c1f52g8nBP
