Guns

While on the one hand, I understand and respect that we have a Second Amendment right to bear arms in order to protect ourselves and property and that there are many Americans who do enjoy gun-related activities such as hunting and collection. On the other hand, from mass shootings to suicides, our lack of common-sense legislation regarding guns leads to so much preventable injury and death. More than 100,000 Americans are either killed or injured every year due to gun violence and more than half of those deaths are suicides. We need regulations to prevent military-style weaponry from being used for mass murder and policies that work to prevent Americans with mental illness from taking their own lives.

Guns

Rik will never back down from defending the 2nd Amendment.  Stopping gun violence does not mean scapegoating or infringing upon the rights of law-abiding citizens who own guns for self-defense of any other purpose.  Rik supports expanding conceal carry laws coupled with an effective background check system to keep guns out of the hands of criminals or the mentally ill.
