I am committed to overturning Act 562, formerly HB1249, if elected. It’s badly written and riddled with issues never fully flushed out or thoroughly debated. More importantly, it’s just bad policy. My opponent authored it and continued to make it worse with expanded amendments that were not well thought out and did not listen to any stakeholders or constituents. After EVERY college and university in the state voted not to allow guns on their campuses, my opponent took it upon himself to take away local control and force the issue despite outcries from university staff, faculty, officials, police, students and parents.
"At every meet and greet I go to, the first thing that comes up is guns," Garner said. "The real issue is that Charlie didn't listen, not to faculty or staff, students or parents or the campus police."
