Jill Stein's Idea on Gun Regulations
Jill Stein believes that there should be harder ways for people to get guns. She feels that there should be more strict gun regulations. When asked about how she felt about assault weapons in America back in 2012 she stated, "We certainly need an assault weapons ban, but we need more than that." She also stated, "We need background checks, so that the mentally ill are not possessing and using guns. And we need to end the gun show loopholes, as well, because there's far too much violence from guns, which is not needed."
How Jill Stein Feels About Legalization of Marijuana
Back in 2011, she was asked how she felt about marijuana and other drugs being legalized. She stated that marijuana is only dangerous because it's illegal and feels that if it was legal, it wouldn't be dangerous. She said most drugs are illegal for a good reason. A quote from her when asked, "Should marijuana and other drugs be legalized?" she stated, "We wouldn't remove all laws against all drug use. Marijuana is a drug that is dangerous because it's illegal. It isn't illegal because it's dangerous. There are drugs in use that are far more harmful than marijuana--such as alcohol. Legalize marijuana and the dangers go away. Regulate it so that children can't buy it on the street corner."
Jill Stein's feelings about Abortion
Jill Stein feels that abortion should be pro-choice. However, she feels people should have an easier way of accessing birth control. A quote from her in 2012 about outlawing abortion says, "No, but providing birth control, sex education and social services could help reduce the number of abortions."
