Montana currently has the highest rate of suicide in the nation, and we MUST do more to curb this epidemic. We must:
Fund suicide prevention efforts across the state (there are currently just TWO suicide prevention coordinators in the entire state of Montana)
Support laws to keep guns out of the hands of people who are a danger to themselves or others.
Support effective and innovative behavioral health initiatives.
I will fight to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers. Currently, there is a federal law to do just that, but local law enforcement lacks the tools to remove guns from domestic abusers. We can strengthen that law to protect women and children.
I believe there should be background checks on all gun sales.
I oppose any effort to weaken or repeal Montana’s Medicaid Expansion, which has given 70,000 Montanans access to health care.
