Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar says that she comes at gun safety legislation from the perspective of: “Would this hurt my Uncle Dick in the deer stand?”
Appearing Monday night at a CNN town hall in New Hampshire, the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate says her state values the outdoors as well as hunting and fishing.
She says banning assault weapons wouldn’t hurt her Uncle Dick in the deer stand, nor would background checks.
Her voice broke as she recalled the mother of a Sandy Hook school shooting victim describing how her little boy died in the arms of his school aide.
Klobuchar says, “We should join the majority of Americans and actually many gun owners in having the courage to pass common sense gun safety legislation.
