Today, Lt. Governor Dan Forest released the following statement:
- "While solutions to address the problem of mass murders in our country are way past due, I have yet to see a 'red flag' bill that adequately protects the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans. Instead, what we get are overly broad, undefined plans that could lead to government gun confiscation.
- "We'd be better served as a nation by addressing the root causes that are driving people to violence - the breakdown of the family, mental illness, social isolation and the refusal to recognize the dignity of human life. This is hard, much harder than scoring political points. But this kind of approach will be the most effective in solving a defining issue of our generation."
