Gottheimer Endorsed By Everytown For Gun Safety
U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) announced today that he has received the endorsement of Everytown for Gun Safety for his leadership on gun violence prevention and commitment to strengthening gun safety laws to keep families and communities safe. Everytown for Gun Safety, along with its grassroots networks, Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action, is the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country with nearly six million supporters.
“We’re proud to support Rep. Josh Gottheimer, a strong leader in the fight to keep our communities and schools safe from gun violence and an important member of the gun sense majority in Congress,” said Moms Demand Action Founder Shannon Watts. “Voters across the country are demanding action on this issue, and our grassroots volunteers are fully committed to re-electing Rep. Gottheimer and other gun sense champions fighting to end gun violence.”
“I’m honored to be endorsed by Everytown for Gun Safety and proud to be fighting alongside its six million supporters to put an end to the crisis of senseless and preventable gun violence that has plagued our nation,” said Gottheimer. “I stand with all Americans who are deeply frustrated by the lack of action in Washington when real, practical solutions exist to save lives and make our schools, homes, and communities safer. Common sense gun safety shouldn’t be a partisan issue – it’s long overdue for Congress to come together across party lines to make solving this crisis a top priority.”
