‘Even as a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, I have a red line.’

David Todd is the Chief of Police in Fargo, North Dakota and one of his biggest fears is losing one of his officers. That happened in 2016, when Officer Jason Moszer answered a call about a domestic violence dispute.

More officers are killed on domestic dispute calls than any other service call. Chief Todd says closing loopholes that allow domestic abusers to possess guns will save lives. “Individuals with violent records like domestic violence should never be allowed to own a gun,” he said. Earlier this month, I had the pleasure to meet Chief Todd and video tape this Op-Ed for the New York Times, working with the amazing producer Matteen Mokalla.
