Andrew Yang on Gun Control

 

 


Future without handguns is not reality

Q: In an ideal world, would anyone own handguns?

A: "Talking about a future where no one owns a handgun is, frankly, not going to match up with reality."

Treat guns the way we treat motor vehicles

I think that we should treat guns in a very similar way to the way we treat motor vehicles, where you have to get licensed and tested because vehicles can kill people, and firearms do the same thing. And we should be having federal background checks around mental illness and criminal records and domestic violence. In parallel, I would invest in a massive mental health initiative, to address some of these incidents of gun violence before they happen.

Make gun manufacturers liable for mass shootings

Yang has proposed holding gun manufacturers responsible for mass shootings by charging them $1 million per person killed in a public setting. He also wants to raise the legal age of gun ownership from 18 to 21.
