Gun Violence cost AZ 1.9 Billion per year. What will you do to address this?

Invest in public education, expand Medicaid, and pass meaningful criminal justice reform that gives deserving Arizonans a second chance.

What have you done to prevent Gun Violence?

I have been an ardent support of criminal justice reform efforts since 2012, working especially to keep our young communities of color out of detention.

Gun Violence cost AZ 1.9 Billion per year. What will you do to address this?

We need to have a better understanding and react to the crisis by funding the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to do the research necessary to assess gun violence fully. We need to hire sufficient certified counselors for our schools which can help identify students who may be a danger to themselves and others. We need to improve our integrative mental health system, pass universal background checks for all gun sales, ban assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines, pass legislation to include Extreme Risk Protection Orders, raise the minimum age for purchasing and possessing guns, and pass child access prevention laws. We also need to ensure our schools all can implement consistent security standards necessary to prevent active shooter situations, which will assist law enforcement should they need to respond. We have to pass preventive measures in order to avoid a gun violence situation. We must also stop the 3D plastic gun blueprints from distribution.

What have you done to prevent Gun Violence?

I am a new member of Moms Demand Action and have donated to Everytown for Gun Safety in the past. I actively advocated and participated in the March for Our Lives protests, and support the movement to stop gun violence. While I respect our constitution, and the 2nd Amendment, I believe it is purposely being misused with limitless gun laws to appease an industry whose focus is power and greed. If elected I will work with my colleagues on implementing sensible and reasonable gun safety laws.
