Michelle Nunn on Gun Control
NUNN: I respect the Second Amendment. I have a longstanding heritage of hunters. My mom still carries the 20-gauge that her mother gave her. I have a 10-year-old son now who likes to hunt. What I am for, and what most people are for, are background checks for criminals and terrorists, and for those who are mentally unstable. I think that's common ground that we can all agree upon. I think that's what I would be standing for.
Q: Assault weapons ban, yes or no?
NUNN: It has been hard to really measure its success, and it has not necessarily reduced violence. And I just don't think it's on the table right now.
