Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Dennis Richardson Talks Gun Control

The two candidates for Governor have differing views on this issue.


Governor Kitzhaber has supported recent gun control measures, but Republican Gubernatorial candidate Dennis Richardson doesn't believe fewer guns are the answer.


"It's not enough to say it's a gun free zone and hope that you're not confronted with someone with a gun.  We need to fight deadly force with deadly force and school districts have the power to address that.  I was just thinking how would I feel if I had grandchildren in these schools where people are getting killed and the Superintendent said we're not going to allow any guns here except for the people intent on murder."


In a newsletter following the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre in Connecticut, Richardson advocated for campus responders. 


He would like to see district employees get additional training and regular practice in the use of firearms.
