City Club Missoula – Senator Steve Daines opposes gun legislation; supports hardened schools, early intervention
During an often contentious crowd in Missoula on Monday, Sen. Steve Daines reaffirmed his opposition to gun legislation proposed in the wake of several recent mass shootings, saying it would only provide a false sense of security and do little to address the problem.
Instead, Daines said, the U.S. has a deeper issue that will require changes to the juvenile criminal justice system, who qualifies as a terrorist, and funding to harden school defenses.
“I’m concerned about some of the ideas I’m seeing, that there’s going to be more gun control,” Daines said in a Monday interview. “I don’t think the answer is more gun control. We’re not going to be safer with more gun control. We’re going to be safer by addressing the core issue.”
