I own firearms, just like many other law-abiding people in our district. Americans and Floridians own firearms for many legitimate purposes, including for home defense, for hunting, and for target shooting. I will work to preserve the tradition of responsible gun ownership that we have in this country and in this state.
In order to preserve responsible gun ownership, we have to recognize that there is a gun violence problem, and that we have a duty to fix these problems. To do nothing would mean more needless deaths. I promise to seek common-sense solutions that target gun violence while also protecting the right to bear arms.
