“I do think we can be more nuanced about what types of guns [we allow] and also making sure we close that loophole on gun shows, there are responsible gun owners and they use guns responsibly.

“People are going to have the right to bear arms, the question is, are there reasonable limits on that right so we can have a safer America.” – Julian Castro, FORA TV – The Commonwealth Club, 31 January 2013.
