Democratic Candidate’s Positions on Gun Control (Bullock, Buttigieg, Castro, and Delaney)

The Sexy Politico knows that there are some issues that are more important to voters than others. Gun control is important to me and that is why I am starting here. What topic would you like me to look into? Let me know in the comments here on on our twitter or facebook pages.

Steve Bullock: Bullock is the current Governor of Montana. He is also the former lutenent governor of Montana. He doesn’t have a voting record but he does have public statements we can look at.

  • Believes that legal firearm owners just want to keep their families safe
  • Supports background checks and age restrictions
  • Believes in the Second Amendment, but not guns in the wrong hands
  • Wants to keep forever access to hunting and fishing
start at around the 8 minute mark for his take on guns

Julian Castro: Castro was in President Obama’s Cabinent as Housing and Urban Development Secretary (2014-2017). He was also mayor of San Antonio from 2009-2014. Castro has no voting record to look at.

  • Wants to ensure background checks and waiting periods are enforced at gun shows
  • Supported a ban on “assault weapons”
