David Trone on Gun Control



Work with both parties to pass common sense gun control

Every year there are over 30K gun-related deaths and we must take action to stop the violence. I'll take on the NRA and work with both sides to pass common-sense gun safety laws. Reject all special interest money, including the NRA. Among my top priorities is expanding background checks that keep guns out of the hands of people with a history of violence or serious mental illness by closing the gun-show and loopholes. Ban assault-rifles and bump stocks.

Support gun-control, according to PVS survey.

Trone supports the PVS survey question on gun control

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Guns: Do you generally support gun-control legislation?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
