131st Assembly candidates on 2A

The Daily Messenger has some information on the candidates running in AD-131:

“… Another controversial issue — gun laws — sets the candidates apart. The SAFE Act, passed in 2013 in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, prevents criminals and the dangerously mentally ill from buying guns, cracks down on illegal guns and bans the most dangerous assault weapons. Additional gun-control measures were passed last year that ban bump stocks, allow people to seek a court order to ban dangerous people from having guns, and bar school districts from letting teachers be armed. [Republican Jeff Gallahan] thinks the gun laws go too far and threaten law-abiding citizens. [Democrat Matt Miller], who gained experience with firearms in the military, sees gun reform measures addressing public safety and not infringing on Second Amendment rights. In stressing their key issues and strengths, Gallahan says he will fight to end bail reform, support the Second Amendment, and use his leadership and business skills to advocate for the district …”

FWIW, NRA endorsed Gallahn and he has the support of the local SCOPE chapter as well.

The district has a roughly 35K to 28K Republican enrollment advantage.
