There have been over 350 mass shootings in our country already this year, including in Indiana. We must be deliberate in our actions to prioritize and protect public safety in our communities by curbing gun violence. 90 percent of Hoosiers support requiring a background check on every gun sale, and Indiana law enforcement has spoken out against the permitless carry law passed by the Republican supermajority this year. Common-sense gun responsibility laws will save lives and improve public safety.
When you elect me to the Indiana State Senate, I will listen to the advice of law enforcement. I will partner with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to enact the will of Hoosiers to improve public safety in our state. We cannot bring back those we’ve lost to gun violence, but it is our responsibility to ensure we do everything we can to prevent further injuries and deaths.
