Supports trigger locks, licensing, & banning some guns

    Some people are killed or injured with guns and some law-abiding people want to use guns for self-defense. How do you blend the two?
  1. Make sure the weapons are designed safely with trigger locks.
  2. Strong law enforcement so that they’re not falling into the hands of criminals.
  3. Look at a weapon the way you look at a car. You’ve got to know how to handle it. You should be licensed.
  4. There are certain weapons that should be banned.
If you do all that, both interests will be protected.
