Larry Bradley for Regent, District 4, Response to
“March For Our Lives" Rallies Nationally and World Wide
Omaha, NE - Larry Bradley, for Board Of Regents, District 4, 2018
In the light of the affirmative actions being taken today, March 24, 2018, by the courageous youth of The March For Our Lives Organization, parents, and fellow advocates, The Larry Bradley for Regent, District 4 Campaign would like to issue a statement on Gun Control.
Mass shootings on elementary, middle, high school, and college campuses in America today dictate that a candidate for the University of Nebraska system MUST inform the voters of their stance on this very important issue.
As a veteran who qualified as an expert with the M-16 rifle in the United States Army, as well as a civilian who enjoys big game hunting, an educator, adjunct professor, and most importantly a parent, I feel that I may have a certain degree of knowledge and understanding about the subject of gun control.
I do not think that bump stocks or automatic weapons should be placed in the hands of the general public. I do not think that professors on campuses should be armed with any fire arms at all. I strongly feel that trained law enforcement and U.S. Military personnel should be the only ones to have the use of fully automatic weapons.
I am not a member of the NRA, but, I do know that they offer and have excellent programs to train adults and youth about proper use of firearms. I appreciate the youth hunters safety training in the state of Nebraska. Both of my children, now adults, have benefited greatly from the hunters safety program provided in the state of Nebraska.
I will not accept any campaign funding or contributions from the NRA.
Finally, I stand for the Second Amendment contained within the Bill of Rights. I defended and upheld all rights of the U.S. Constitution while serving in the U.S. Army, but, we all must do our best to reach common sense agreements making sure there are no more wholesale slaughters of students in America’s elementary, middle schools, high schools, and college campuses.
