‘I Really Don’t Personally Think Anyone Should Have a Gun’: Democratic National Committee Policy Shaper Has Her Say

Bonnie Schaefer, a philanthropist who’s part of the 15-member platform drafting committee of the Democratic National Committee, made her views about gun control quite clear this week, saying it’s not enough just to keep guns “out of the hands of mentally ill people and criminals.”
“I really don’t personally think anyone should have a gun,” Schaefer went on to say at Wednesday’s DNC planning event. “I mean, that’s just my own … philosophy. Nothing is ever solved when you have a gun in your hand, except the worst possible scenario.”
Joining Schaefer on the committee are chairman Elijah Cummings (the U.S. representative from Maryland), along with the likes of outspoken professor Cornel West, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison and Center for American Progress executive director Neera Tanden. WATCH
