NOT ONE MORE. ENDING GUN VIOLENCE.
The senseless epidemic of gun violence has taken far too many lives. Our residents deserve to learn, work, and play without the fear of armed violence.
As County Executive, I promise to stand in solidarity with families and communities affected by gun violence. From Day One, I will work with the sheriff’s and prosecutor’s offices to ensure a proactive approach to countering gun violence. I will work with our state representatives and senators, as well as our congressional delegation, in order to support common sense gun control, such as universal background checks and red flag laws.
In addition, too many incidents of gun violence are suicides. Through my plan for a broad and robust public health system, which will cover mental health, I will work to make sure that anyone who needs help can receive it.
Finally, I will advocate for the state to repeal its preemption law, so that local governments throughout the county can establish further regulations to ensure the safety of their residents.
