More Issues That Matter
I am honored to have been awarded the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction. As a military wife and the mother of hunters, I am all too aware of the issues surrounding gun safety.
If you agree that we need leadership that supports common sense gun safety legislation, sign up to be a volunteer with our campaign today!
I support background checks for all gun sales, red flag laws and not allowing those who are on no-fly lists, have violent criminal records or mentally ill to own a gun. I support banning high capacity assault style weapons and high capacity magazines, and I'm absolutely opposed to permitless carry. A person should have at least as much training and understanding to carry a dangerous weapon as they do to drive a car.
Following the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting, Moms Demand Action has mobilized mothers across the country to become the largest grassroots movement working to reduce gun violence. And, I am proud to be awarded this distinction alongside Moms everywhere.
