Listen to what our young people are saying.
They don't want to grow up in a world of fear and danger. They don't have to. No other civilized nation allows citizens to walk off the street and into the store to buy automatic weapons. No other civilized country has gun-related deaths anything like ours. This does not have to be.
I support a ban on the sale of assault weapons, bump stocks, and high-capacity ammunition clip. I support background checks for all gun sales in Maine. I will work with people in all parts of Maine to find a way to make it safe for our school children and police officers and general public, but in ways that respect the rural traditions of hunting and safe gun use.
I am a Clean Elections candidate. I will not accept one penny from the NRA (or any other special interest group). We need to get gun money out of politics to even have a rational discussion and to make changes to the issues we care about, including the safety and well-being of our children. I am here to represent you, our children, and our communities, not the gun lobby or big donors. I am not afraid of the NRA; will do what needs to be done.
