Guns

I support the 2nd amendment right of citizens to have guns. But we need sensible restrictions on the ownership and use of weapons. We need comprehensive background checks for mental illness, prior weapon mis-use, criminal and/or possible terrorist connections. I oppose Open Carry and Campus Carry. These are simply a capitulation to a radical gun lobby and gun manufacturers. The nation has survived 200+ years without these laws and we have a society free from fear. This will change that, without contributing to safety. Restrictions on certain types of assault weapons, high capacity cartridges, and ammunition. Support for "smart" guns that can prevent suicides and accidental deaths. The pro-gun lobby will be shrill about how this restricts a constitutional freedom. It does no such thing. I do not support taking away anybody's guns, whether they are for personal protection, hunting, or other recreation.
