Cary Kennedy on Gun Control
Ban assault weapons; fight the NRA & gun lobby
We lose too many lives to senseless shootings. We are no stranger to mass shooting tragedies here in Colorado. We need to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, domestic abusers, and the dangerously mentally ill, which is why I support common
sense restrictions on guns like universal background checks. We also need to keep military-style weapons out of our communities including bump stocks, silencers, and other military style devices that are designed to kill large numbers of people in a
small amount of time.
My heart is broken for the victims, parents and loved ones of the victims of mass shootings that have terrorized our country. It is time to turn our grief and fear into action. We can and will do more to prevent gun violence in Colorado.

the horrific violence in Florida in recognition that it is our kids, it is our students, who are the targets and victims of mass shootings all across this country," Kennedy said.
She believes it's time to ban military assault weapons in the
United States and supports mandates of universal background checks. She advocates for a "Red Flag" law, which would allow guns to be taken away from those who show risk to themselves or others.
