I read Stewart Mills' comments at the joint campaign event in Little Falls. During his last campaign he didn't think the minimum wage needed to be raised and the rich needed a break because they were paying too much in taxes. His focus so far this time seems to be on gun control. He said there is not a single thing in any of the legislation that has been proposed would have saved a single person in Orlando. How about preventing the shooter from buying an assault rifle or ammunition? He said he was opposed to the "no fly, no buy" idea of restricting people on the terrorist no-fly list from buying weapons. Apparently, he thinks it is more important to protect the rights of anyone on that list to buy a weapon than the general public's right to stay alive. I definitely know who I am not voting for.
