If you want my vote in the 2020 presidential election, you will need to stand up and take a platform banning all offensive assault weapons. The 2nd amendment guarantees our right to bear arms, but this was written to allow citizens to defend themselves and defend the State. An assault weapon such as an AK 47 IS a weapon used for offensive purposes, NOT defense. These weapons should only be in the hands of our law enforcement agents and NOT the general public.
If you want my vote in the 2020 election, then you need to stand up to the NRA and support legislation that bans these assault weapons. Too many people dying including our children.

Mr. Buttigieg, is a millennial and seems to have a great head on his shoulders. I believe he can do the job of president of the United States of America better than any older candidate including our current president. As a millennial and professional, this is the man which will protect the free market system and insure success for our species on this planet into the future.

America protects the world but neglects young Americans at home.: Would you lead the charge to have dear colleague letter for Trump to Protect all American children by granting equal protection to Liberian Mothers brought to the USA through Operation Shining Express and abandoned since 2003?

Would you sponsor a dear colleague letter to Trump asking him to protect American children rescued by Marines in 2003 and abandoned since then?
