(CNN) - Jerry Townsend of Clio, Michigan calmly told the candidates in his video he had sincere concerns about protecting his baby.
"To all the candidates, tell me your position on gun control as myself and other Americans really want to know if our babies our safe," Townsend said.
But Townsend's baby doesn't need health care reform, protection from terrorists or No Child Left Behind. His 'baby' was a gun.
"I'll tell you, if that's his baby, he needs help," Sen. Biden, D-Delaware, said. He went on to say that efforts should be focused on making sure people who are mentally imbalanced or who have a criminal record don't get their hands on guns.
Gov. Richardson, D-New Mexico, said instant background checks are key, in addition to "attacking poverty, bringing people together, dealing with those kids in the ghettos that are heavy users of gun violence, and they are victims of gun violence, to make sure that this country attacks the core problems of poverty, having childcare, bringing people together."
