Preventing gun violence is not a partisan issue – it is a human issue and we must work to find common ground to protect people. Nine out of 10 Texans support universal background checks, including a majority of gun owners.
I’ll work to pass extreme risk protection orders (sometimes known as red flag laws), close the “boyfriend loophole” that allows access to guns by physically abusive ex-boyfriends and stalkers with previous convictions, and end the gun show loophole that allows individuals to buy a gun without a background check from an unlicensed dealer at a gun show. I’ll work to keep in place the ban on bump stocks and to ban the sale of military-style assault weapons. And I’ll never accept money from the big gun lobby in Washington.
