Growing up on the south side of Chicago, I have seen first-hand the impact that gun violence can have on a community. Gun violence is again on the rise throughout the country. I believe in common sense gun laws that work to make Oregonians safer. This includes banning and criminalizing ghost guns and ensuring that loopholes in background checks are corrected. Anyone who is looking to purchase a gun should go through a background check at a minimum. We all want safe communities for our families and our neighbors. That is why I am proud to have earned the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate designation. As your State Senator I will work to find common-sense gun safety measures that will help keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them.
