What policies, if any, would you pursue to address public safety and gun violence?

Lloyd Doggett

35th District


Replace short memorial moments of silence with genuine action to prevent repeated tragedies. Too dangerous to fly should mean too dangerous to buy guns, while assuring reasonable due process rights for those improperly listed as dangerous. Approving universal background checks, eliminating gun show/internet loopholes is not inconsistent with Second Amendment. Gun owners know the importance of keeping the safety on. Ban military-style assault weapons, designed solely to kill humans quickly. Continued support of Moms Demand Action, Texas Gun Sense seeking responsible changes.
