Seems my caucus was right and this “anyone can carry” thing isn’t working out so well in TN @shannonrwatts. Add boating/fishing to places we aren’t safe from gun violence. I hope this victim recovers fully. wvlt.tv/2022/07/22/boa…

More than 100 gun violence survivors shared their stories virtually and in person in meetings with lawmakers. #caleg twitter.com/RestingBoeFace…
Our volunteers called, messaged, and testified, and over 1000 of them reached out to their lawmakers, imploring them to prevent ghost guns, stop marketing guns to children, and hold the firearms industry accountable. #caleg twitter.com/roanthibault/s…
The package of laws include bills from @SenBobHertzberg @Portantino @AsmMikeGipson @PhilTing @BauerKahan @AsmMuratshuchi @AsmChrisWard on industry accountability, prohibiting firearm marketing to minors, and further regulating ghost guns. #CALeg twitter.com/shannonrwatts/…
As @StudentsDemand volunteer and survivor of the Saugus High School shooting @mia_tretta said, ghost guns “once seen as the weapon of choice by terrorists and criminals have started to show up in the hands of children and teens and in school shootings like mine.” #caleg
THEY DID IT!!! California @MomsDemand and @StudentsDemand volunteers joined Gov. @GavinNewsom and our allies today as he signed the FIFTH gun safety bill of the session into law, part of a historic package that increases industry accountability and combats ghost guns. #CALeg

When will enough be enough? Gun violence continues to plague communities across the country. As Mayors, we are generals on the frontlines fighting this epidemic and find our cities crying out for help. We need the federal government to step up and take action now.

More than 70% of guns collected by KCPD in 2021 connected to violent crimes were produced by the 15 largest gun manufacturers in America. Manufacturers who flood our cities with crime guns must be held accountable. 1/2

In the US, there’s a death by suicide every 11 minutes; half of those who die haven’t received mental health care. Anxiety, depression and eating disorders have skyrocketed among young people. ER visit rates for self-harm doubled for girls ages 10 to 14. overcast.fm/+oiPXDg_Ug

I am honored to be distinguished as a Gun Sense Candidate by Moms Demand Action (@MomsDemand). Unlike my opponents, I know more guns and more officers in schools will NOT keep our children safe, but common sense #GunSafety laws will.

Overheard this week: gun lobby has spent this Summer handing out checks to TX Republicans because they want to LOWER age for “permitless carry” to 18 to align w/age to buy a long gun or assault-style weapon. Would love to be proven wrong. @UvaldeNews @MomsDemand @txgunsense twitter.com/lmcgaughy/stat…

Thank you to everyone that showed up & told their stories at last night’s South Oakland @MomsDemand meeting! Last month I was proud to vote for the first gun safety bill signed into law in a decade, but our work does not stop there. I will never stop fighting to end gun violence.

Founder of @MomsDemand, @shannonrwatts, knows how important it is to elect gun violence prevention advocates to office — especially in the aftermath of the recent #SCOTUS decision that overturned NY’s concealed carry law. That’s why she’s supporting my run for State Senate.
