WASHINGTON, D.C. — A viewer sent NewsChannel 9 an e-mail, concerned about how Congressman Beto O'rourke's office has been handling questions about gun control.
A representative told the viewer they couldn't disclose any information.
Thursday, O'rourke responded.
"Everything should be on the table, including better enforcement of existing laws, improved access to mental health treatment, and an examination of whether restrictions on high-capacity magazines or assault weapons would prevent future mass shootings," he said.
"If specific legislation comes before Congress, I will base my support on two simple criteria: will it make my constituents safer and will it protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners."
