IamA Democratic candidate for US Congress from Utah (4th District). AMA!
LIVE AMA ENDED @ 11:00 a.m. MDT
Thank you all for your interest and participation. This AMA was fun and instructive. There is one thing I would like to say:
Too much of this thread was devoted to going down the rabbit hole on gun legislation. On this, though, I am certain we can agree: first, let's institute Universal Background Checks. Let's repeal the Dickey Amendment, which is responsible for the rash of non-authoratative statistics over which we needlessly squabble. I am willing to shunt other reforms aside, for now, to get that done.
I am a lifelong resident of Utah and a U of U grad (PoliSci 2005). My key issues are campaign finance, health care and equal protection.
I am endorsed by SL County's chapters of Our Revolution and I am a Justice Democrat. If you need to pigeon-hole my politics, call me an aggressive progressive.
