Gun Reform

Rishi wants to stop the meaningless deaths

It's not mental illness or broken families - America has a huge problem and it's senseless deaths, little children dying and it's shattering communities nationwide. And it is like Groundhog Day!

Thoughts and prayers aren't enough, they never were. It's time to take action and pass commonsense gun reform, NOW!

With overall rates of violence increasing across the country, increased measures must be taken. There are more firearms than citizens of the United States. Nearly every European country and ally of the US has both lower rates of gun violence and stricter laws. It is essential to the safety of our country.

We need a way out of this madness. It is time we stopped the sale of assault weapons in the United States.

Anna Eshoo has proposed nothing in more than a decade - she thinks loud tv noise is more important than gun deaths. Sam Liccardo, Mayor of San Jose, called out the failure of Congress - "We are tired of waiting for Congress to act. To confront the scourge of escalating gun violence in our nation, we need bolder, more impactful, and more creative solutions than the half-measures that have emerged from Congress.” Yes, Anna Eshoo is part of this failure.

It is a bipartisan effort - we should come together as elected leaders to decrease the violence at home.

The difference between Eshoo and Rishi

Rishi's political agenda has always been to find real solutions for your tough challenges - not half-baked, ill-conceived political posturing. Unenforceable laws with little relevance beyond the buried archives they are contained within do not just signify political grandstanding, but political failure.

Clean money is Rishi’s driving agenda: Rishi will NEVER accept money from Pharma,the NRA, or any other gun systems manufacturer like Eshoo has. On the city council, he has always rejected money from real-estate developers. Rishi’s intention is meaningful problem-solving and never about “activity for the sake of activity” - a mantra which he has repeated numerous times when analyzing policies and outcomes at city council meetings.

Rishi is a Pacifist

Rishi is a pacifist who regularly visits Buddhist monasteries, advocates for veganism, and believes in peaceful coexistence, always willing to fight for peace. When Foster City was culling wild geese, he was the first elected leader to speak up against it - “It is inhumane and I protest vehemently against the geese cull. Seriously - the city is going to break their neck? This is not a solution or an option in this day and age. I am against goose cruelty and for peaceful coexistence with wildlife”.
