Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez on Gun Control

 

 


Advocates for gun legislation majority of Americans support

Cristina believes our representatives should fight for victims of gun violence and their families, and Texans that are demanding change, and not the NRA. Cristina has endorsed the Peace Plan for a Safer America. Cristina will advocate for gun legislation that the majority of Americans support, including universal background checks, banning and buying back assault weapons like AR-15s and AK-47s, and holding the gun lobby accountable for the harm they have done to our communities.

Ban assault style weapons, pass background checks

When it comes to gun control, TzintzŁn Ramirez said she was the best shot in her family growing up and supports protecting the second amendment, but she said she also supports mandatory gun buybacks. "I've been waiting my entire adult life to see Congress do very basic things like pass universal background checks, banning assault style weapons and instead we've been teaching a generation of young people to play dead in their classrooms," TzintzŁn Ramirez said.

We all want background checks & ban on weapons of war

Ban assault weapons, with mandatory buyback

MJ Hegar's rivals pounced after she rejected Beto O'Rourke's call for mandatory buybacks of assault weapons--reflecting a major fault line in the field of Democrats angling to take down Sen. John Cornyn next year.

Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez rejected Hegar's stance. "Without a mandatory buyback program, we're leaving weapons of war in our communities. That's a recipe for violence," she argued on Twitter. "Our children's lives are on the line. This isn't a time for political caution."
