For a long time, Bullock has been a loyal and committed supporter of the Second Amendment and Montana’s gun laws. Recently though, he expressed his approval for universal background checks, as well as support for a widespread ban.
Democrats have requested assault weapon ban and other widespread gun control policies in the wake of the string of mass shootings at schools earlier this year, despite attempts to pass legislation have fizzled over the summer.
“I’ve had to lower the flag 13 times for mass shootings since I’ve been governor. The first time was one too many,” Bullock wrote in an op-ed earlier this year.
