John Delaney on Gun Control

Democratic candidate for President; U.S. Rep from MD-6

 


Ban assault weapons & all high-capacity accessories

Delaney on Assault Weapons: Support a ban on assault weapons.

NINE CANDIDATES HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS: Michael Bennet; Joseph Biden, Jr.; Cory Booker; Kirsten Gillibrand; Kamala Harris; Amy Klobuchar; Bernard Sanders; Elizabeth Warren; Marianne Williamson.

Sen. Michael Bennet said during a CNN town hall that he "would support" banning assault weapons, despite voting against the proposed Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Former Rep. John Delaney's campaign website calls for a ban on "semiautomatic weapons that have military-style features, including the AR-15," as well as a ban on "high-capacity magazines" and "all accessories designed to increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic weapon, including bump stocks and trigger cranks."

Q: In an ideal world, would anyone own handguns?

A: We don't live in an ideal world. We live in a country where we have the Second Amendment, which I support.
