Shri Thanedar, and I am a scientist, entrepreneur, and now Democratic candidate for Governor of Michigan .

Running for Governor.

While Shri is supportive of the Second Amendment, he also believes we must take a principled stance and draw the line on several issues that are important to our country’s future. Shri believes all assault weapons should be banned - a weapon of war does not belong in the hands of civilians. He also believes in universal background checks for all gun purchasers and is also on record as being supportive of “red flag” legislation that would allow law enforcement to temporarily confiscate firearms from individuals who pose an immediate risk to themselves or others. As Governor, Shri will create an abuse registry to ensure that individuals convicted of domestic abuse do not obtain access to firearms. Most importantly, Shri believes the time has come to have a comprehensive dialogue as a country to determine the best course of action when it comes to gun safety and is absolutely committed to protecting citizens from gun violence."
