Bernie Sanders on Gun Control

Sanders supports stricter gun control laws

“I come from a state which has virtually no gun control. Yet I voted to ban certain types of assault weapons I voted to close the gun show loophole and I voted for background, instant background checks and what I said is that a nation we as a nation we can’t continue screaming at each other or else we’ve got to find common ground. For a start, universal instant background checks. Nobody should have a gun who has a criminal background,
who’s involved in domestic abuse situations. People should not have guns who are going to hurt other people, who are unstable. And second of all I believe that we need to make sure that certain types of guns used to kill people exclusively, not for hunting, they should not be sold in the United States of America, And we have a huge loophole now with gun shows that should be eliminated, There may be other things that we have to do but coming from a rural state I think that I can communicate with folks coming from urban states where guns mean different things then they do in Vermont, That’s where we’ve got to go, we don’t need to argue with each other and yell at each other. We need a common sense solution.”

(0:28 – 1:08)
“I saw the president’s statement and I know him well enough to know that this was very personal for him. He is disgusted, he is angry; he is sick and tired as we all are of sending our condolences to the families of people who have been murdered in cold blood. And the president is right condolences are not enough. We’ve got to do something, we have to stop shouting at each other, we need sensible gun control legislation. And by the way we need to significantly improve mental health services in the United States of America, and I pledge to do everything that I can in both of those areas.”
