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.
