Mark Gordon on Gun Control
Disarm students immediately when they bring guns to school
I believe we can take steps towards making our schools safer. There's a bill and a budget proposal that I believe can make a difference for the safety of our kids.
Last fall, a young person stepped forward to tell Principal Terry Quinn about a fellow
student who planned an attack in his school. After hearing this information Principal Quinn immediately acted to locate and disarm the student, who was carrying a pistol and had another gun in his locker. When confronted, the student revealed that he
had wanted to shoot as many students as he could. It is a sad thing that these sorts of incidents can happen.
But, Principal Quinn and the staff at Sage Valley Junior High have created a school culture that fosters confidence in students to do the
right thing and come forward when necessary.
Principal Quinn is here with us today and I would like to acknowledge the courage of that young person and the quick and decisive action which averted a potentially devastating tragedy.

Lifelong member of the NRA; defender of the 2nd Amendment
Mark is a lifelong member of the NRA and believes the right to bear arms is fundamental. Growing up on a ranch, owning guns is part of his way of life. Mark hunts, taught all his kids how to shoot and owns a firearm for personal protection.
Mark will continue to be a relentless defender of the Second Amendment.

Pro-family, pro-guns and conservatives
The forum consisted of a series of questions asked of all the candidates, a rapid-fire round that began after they were all asked a question about gun-free zones in Wyoming schools, and another regular round of
questioning in the event that continued for nearly two hours.
All said they were pro-family, pro-guns and conservatives. All six said they don't feel the University of Wyoming has the right to ban guns on its campus.
