FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly spoke with WFFT Wednesday about his plans for gun control in Indiana following the Florida shooting.
Donnelly said his main goal is to make sure every child goes home safely after school. For him, that means stricter gun laws.
He said he would like to see anyone with a history of mental illness or a felony unable to buy a firearm. Donnelly said that means lawmakers need to crack down on gun shows and private sales.
"The expanded background checks would make sure that if you buy online or if you buy at a local gun show that the background check system is exactly the same for purchases there as they are at a store," Donnelly said.
Donnelly also voted in favor of 'No Fly, No Buy,' meaning anyone on the no fly list would not be allowed to buy a gun.
