State of Oklahoma Archives: on Gun Control

Mike Workman: Favors common sense gun laws

Workman's campaign issues are all in the right place: he's for income equality, a $15 minimum wage, expanding the Affordable Care Act with the goal of eventual universal coverage, comprehensive immigration reform including a path to citizenship, and automatic voter registration. He's unapologetically pro-choice and in favor of common sense gun laws, although in Oklahoma he might get farther by advocating the sale of assault rifles to fetuses.

Matt Silverstein: Support the 2nd amendment's right-to-bear arms

Noting his Choctaw grandmother, Silverstein said her stories of being thrown into a government boarding school and beaten if she spoke her native language, taught him that government can't be allowed to get too big or too powerful, while also helping him recognize the importance of supporting the 2nd amendment's right-to-bear arms.
