In an op-ed in the Baldwinsville Messenger, I wrote about my beliefs about gun rights and gun safety, and how we can mitigate the two to keep our children and communities safe.
"The level of gun violence in our country is appalling, and it’s all about the children — sad and confused children with access to killing machines, killing each other. They’re full of fear. They see the propaganda and don’t know how to interpret it. Gun “enthusiasts” are mocking child victims of gun violence. There is widespread adulation of Adolf Hitler and the Confederate States of America. These are not American values, at least not in the America I hold in my heart. It’s past time to address these issues and make guns safer for our society."
