Josh Mahony (AR-Sen), News Clipping

As the owner of an AR-15 rifle, Mahony said he supports universal background checks for gun owners, adding that his right to own a weapon does not outweigh people’s right to feel safe.

He told the group he wants to get rid of the weapon, but hasn’t done so yet, recalling a time when gentlemen sportsmen used to belong to gun clubs where they could leave their weapons and not keep them in their homes.

Mahony said he does have a pistol that he carries for self defense.
