Tony Sanchez on Gun Control

Former Democratic Challenger TX Governor

Enough gun laws on the books; firearms are part of culture

I support the individual right to bear arms. There are currently enough gun laws on the books in Texas and in Washington and I oppose any additional restrictions on Concealed Handgun Law (CHL) applicants or license holders. What we need to do now is vigorously enforce existing laws.

Hunting and the responsible use of firearms is part of the culture of my native South Texas and a Sanchez family tradition. I have taught my three sons and daughter respect for weapons.
