What changes to Texas gun laws would you support or oppose?

Paul D. Workman

Representative, District 47


As state representative, I am pledged to uphold the U.S. Constitution, including the Bill of Rights. I do not support measures that infringe upon the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. I do, however, support increased access to mental health services and exploring red flag laws that balance constitutional rights with the safety of our citizenry. All too often we find out after the fact that a perpetrator of gun violence has a history of mental illness but did not have access to the right kind of care.
