We can make our residents and communities safer while respecting the 2nd amendment…

…through long overdue, common sense reforms supported by the majority of Pennsylvanians, including gun owners. I support universal background checks on all gun sales in Pennsylvania, a ban on military-style semi-automatic weapons and high capacity magazines, and a ban on bump stocks. I also support Extreme Risk Protection Orders, especially in light of the strong evidence that these kinds of policies significantly decrease the number of suicides by gun. I will strongly advocate for increased mental health education and treatment programs.
