Mizeur Releases Plan to Reduce Crime



    5 Ways to Make the City Your Gym
    Democratic Maryland Delegate Heather Mizeur

    Democrat Heather Mizeur has released a plan to reduce crime as part of her primary campaign for governor.

    Mizeur said Wednesday she supports universal background checks for all guns. She also wants to require law enforcement to seize all guns at the scenes of domestic violence incidents. Part of Mizeur's plan includes raising the age requirement for the purchase of all guns to 21 years and providing grants for local buy-back programs.

    As part of an earlier plan to expand pre-kindergarten, Mizeur has announced support for legalizing marijuana and using tax money from selling it to pay for it.

    Mizeur, of Montgomery County, also supports replacing the money-based bail system with a risk-assessment system. The candidate says she wants to work with counties to eliminate zero tolerance school suspension policies.
