Mark Takai on Gun Control
I believe citizens should be allowed to own guns for sport--guns without military applications like automatic firing capability. No one needs an Uzi to puncture paper targets or to bring down a pig during hunting season. These weapons are for killing and should be banned. military grade weapons in their homes.
I also believe that guns should be stored with mandatory trigger locks, that there should be mandatory training requirements, waiting periods for purchasing guns and universal background checks so that people with mental health or violent criminal records cannot legally buy a gun.

This simple tool has helped educate tens of millions of citizens across this nation as to where candidates for public office stand on key faith and family issues.
The Coalition is a political organization, made up of pro-family Americans who care deeply about ensuring that government serves to strengthen and preserve, rather than threaten, our families and our values. To that end, we work continuously to identify, educate and mobilize Christians for effective political action."
