Dan believes that the weapons of war that he carried in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq have no place on our streets - or in our schools. He supports universal background checks for all gun sales; supports a ban on bump stocks, assault rifles, and high capacity magazines; and opposes concealed carry reciprocity (e.g. Virginia's HB 1163, and Congress' Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017). Dan supports repealing the Dickey Amendment, which prevents the CDC from researching gun violence as a public health problem.

As the husband of a public school teacher and father of two young boys, Dan is particularly disturbed by the proliferation of school shootings - and by the inaction of Washington on this issue. Dan will be joining the March for Our Lives in Winchester, VA on Saturday, March 24. For more information, please visit the Events page.
