Gun violence must be treated like a public health crisis.
I was a student in high school when Columbine happened. I remember the shock and horror but also the fear that this could happen in my own community. In 20 years, it seems like nothing has changed except that more and more communities have suffered a similar fate.
As a society, we must say enough is enough. I support common sense gun safety measures, including:
- universal background checks
- closing the gun show and private sales loopholes
- red flag laws
- restoring the federal prohibition on the sale of assault weapons
- repealing campus carry and permit-less carry of handguns
