Sensible Gun Safety Regulations

In the State of the Union address, President Obama called for the enactment of sensible gun regulations. This should be the rallying cry for everyone concerned about gun violence across our nation.

I am a candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates in the 34th District because our representative does not vote for the values, the priorities, or the interests of this district.  In fact, she has an A rating and takes her lead from the NRA. Just this week our delegate voted to ban the disclosure of information about concealed handgun permit holdersIt’s time to for this to stop.

We must demand sensible gun safety regulations including universal background checks, limits on high-capacity magazines, and meaningful laws against gun trafficking. I support our second amendment rights, and believe these are solutions we can all support.

Gun safety is a personal issue for me. My brother was murdered by a robber using a handgun likely bought off the street. Thousands of other families across America have been victimized by gun violence.  We cannot be silent; we cannot stand on the sidelines. Act now. Let your voice be heard.  Contact our Virginia lawmakers.  Demand that they enact sensible gun regulations.
