"Perhaps we'll see fewer street crimes when there are fewer guns on the streets, fewer children without health care, and fewer people working three jobs just to get by."
Barbara Flynn Currie is a strong proponent of the statewide assault weapons ban. She was a major sponsor of the bill which closed the "gun show" loophole. Today everyone at a gun show needs to submit to a criminal background check before they can buy a firearm.
Barbara is a strong supporter of expanding drug treatment programs. She supports expunging non-violent criminal offenses for people who change their ways. This will allow those who made mistakes early in life to move on and get a job.
