Arms Sales to Saudi Coalition
Bullock's position on this issue is unknown. He has favored withdrawing military support to Saudi Arabia while the Yemen conflict continues, but an explicit statement on halting arms sales has not been identified.
Response to Council on Foreign Relations questionnaire, August 30, 2019
“The U.S. should stop its direct support for Saudi Arabia’s reckless war in Yemen, which has resulted in the deaths of thousands of civilians with millions on the verge of starvation. Our priorities must be to facilitate the peace process between the warring parties and to deliver humanitarian aid and relief to the people of Yemen.”
Response to question on whether he would withdraw “U.S. military support” for the Saudi intervention in Yemen, NPR, July 17, 2019
“I would. What's happened in Yemen has been failed from the beginning. So I think that we actually need to actually be withdrawing the U.S. dollars but try to bring the U.N. in together for more of a peacekeeping role.”
Firearms Export Oversight
Bullock’s position on this issue is unknown. He supports banning assault-style weapons domestically, but has not directly addressed broader export oversight rules.
