Rodney earns Gun Sense Candidate Distinction from Moms Demand Action

Are “thoughts and prayers” enough for you? Do you think that’s enough to make our kids and teachers feel safer? It’s not enough for Rodney Govens. He’s ready to do the hard work and identify ways to reduce the number and frequency of mass shootings in the United States.

‘This problem is solvable’

It’s not impossible to protect hunting and 2nd Amendment rights while also ensuring that weapons of war are well-regulated: safely sold and safely stored. Rodney Govens knows this — hear his discussion on gun regulations and the need for solutions and compromise on episode 3 of his Riding With Rodney podcast:

Rodney’s platform statement on gun regulations states:

No one is coming to take your guns away. I do not support diminishing individuals’ right to own guns.
I believe, though, that the gun control issue has devolved into a standoff and we must find a way to better regulate the sales of guns, particularly high-powered weapons intended for use in war. “Well-regulated,” as the Constitution says, is not what we have currently in this country.

We can find a middle ground if we choose to; we can stop the mass shootings and the slaying of schoolchildren if we want to and if we are willing to work together and stop playing politics. If we elect lawmakers who are willing to work together — who, like me, believe that “thoughts and prayers” are the same as pretending there’s no problem — then this is solvable.

We can identify common-sense regulations that:

  • Ensure gun owners have both the resources and the mandates to keep their weapons secure and accessible only to the owner
  • Ensure no guns can be sold to anyone convicted of a violent crime or anyone deemed mentally disabled by a judge
  • Ensure that weapons of war such as automatic and semi-automatic rifles are no longer accessible to any individual who wants one
