Ortt Votes No On Gun Grab

“Federal law already covers gun ownership for violent offenders. This loose language will do nothing to further protect victims of domestic violence but will unconstitutionally target law-abiding gun-owners as a weapons confiscation tool. This is a stand-alone, non-fiscal measure that was lumped in as part of the budget process, passed unnecessarily with a message of necessity, in the dead of the night of a Holy Weekend. And sadly, we continue to see nothing on protecting our children through security upgrades or school resource officers and children's mental health services remain woefully underfunded. I cannot, in good conscience, pat myself on the back and pretend we're making our state safer. Our children are sitting ducks in our schools - all because progressive Democrats cannot stomach the reality that police, law enforcement, and security actually protect us.”
