Keeping our streets safe means more than just putting criminals behind bars. It requires wise public policies and cooperative enforcement of the law. I believe in and have supported common-sense crime fighting policies that give our police the tools they need to keep our children and our communities safe. One of the most important things that we can do to keep safe from violent crimes is to support a robust police force. I have stood up to the gun lobby because part of reducing crime means strong, sensible gun laws.
