OUR PHILOSOPHY

 
One Vote at a Time is committed to eradicating gun violence. We bring to our mission a deeply pragmatic approach to move the needle on common sense gun safety. We recognize that different regions in our country have unique relationships with and cultures around guns.

The following core values are the least common denominators that One Vote at a Time and all of our candidates support:
 
 

UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS

We believe in enforcing universal background checks and closing loopholes, such as the so-called “gun show loophole” which allows buyers to purchase from private sellers or unlicensed dealers without undergoing background checks. 

ASSAULT WEAPONS & LARGE CAPACITY AMMUNITION MAGAZINES

We believe in renewing the federal assault weapons ban. Until then, we believe that states should implement a ban on assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines. We also believe in banning dangerous accessories to modify firearms, like bump stocks. 

SAFE CAMPUSES

We believe in a holistic approach to legislation that will keep our students safe. We do not believe in arming school teachers or administrators. 

EXTREME RISK PROTECTION ORDERS

We believe in Extreme Risk Protection Orders, also known as “red flag laws.” These laws can empower families and law enforcement officials to prevent tragedies by temporarily restricting access to guns for individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others. 

WAITING PERIODS

We believe in implementing waiting periods for firearm purchases. Studies have shown that waiting periods can significantly reduce the rate of suicide by gun. 


This is not a comprehensive list of the policy changes we want to see, but rather a starting point for common sense gun safety legislation that we believe can be achieved in the immediate future.
