ISSUES: Senator Robert Menendez

FOR

Diversity

Most politicians are in favor of diversity. They differ on whether diversity should be legislated.

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Republicans are for diversity, but generally against forced and legislated diversity requirements. See More»

FOR Democrats

Democrats are generally in favor of legislative diversity requirements. See More»

FOR

Gun Control

How to reduce gun violence. Two different approaches.

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

Republicans "share the desire to end gun violence in this country, and in many ways, “universal background checks” sound like a reasonable, commonsense step to make us safer. But in reality, the Democrat proposals do nothing to decrease gun violence. Not only are their proposals duplicative, but they could very well be used to infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens." https://www.gop.gov/member-issue/preventing-mass-shootings/ See More»

FOR Democrats

"Democrats believe that we can reduce gun violence while respecting the rights of responsible gun owners. We believe we should expand and strengthen background checks for those who want to purchase a firearm – because it shouldn’t be easier to get a gun than a driver’s license. We believe we should ensure that guns don’t fall into the hands of terrorists (whether they be domestic or foreign), domestic abusers, other violent criminals, or those who have shown signs of danger toward themselves or others. And we believe we should treat gun violence as the deadly public health crisis it is." https://democrats.org/where-we-stand/the-issues/preventing-gun-violence/ See More»
