Pushing for Sensible Gun Laws
When I was a young boy, my sister used my father’s gun and committed suicide. I am no stranger to the tragedy inflicted on family in the wake of gun violence. Our community came together after the devastating shootings around UCSB. For me, it underscored the need to do everything we can to keep guns away from those who pose a danger to our society. We need to have common-sense reforms in place, like preventing those on the no-fly list from buying a gun, banning high-capacity ammunition purchases, and putting background checks in place to ensure guns don’t fall into the hands of criminals or the mentally ill.
