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, a ban on bump stocks, assault rifles, and high capacity magazines, and opposes concealed carry reciprocity. Dan supports fully repealing the Dickey Amendment and allowing the CDC to research gun violence as a public health issue.

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. In Congress, he will be a staunch advocate of improving gun safety laws.
