Two national gun violence prevention organizations have announced they are officially endorsing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and Americans for Responsible Solutions will support her run for office, both noting her strong record on gun law reform.
Speaking about gun violence in June, Clinton said, "The stakes are too high, the costs are too dear, and I am not and will not be afraid to keep fighting for common sense reforms and along with you, achieve those on behalf of all who have been lost because of this senseless gun violence in this country."
Americans for Responsible Solutions was founded by former Congresswoman and gun violence victim Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly. "Time and time again, Hillary has done and said what is right, not what is politically expedient. That's why we are supporting her for President of the United States," said Giffords.
“Hillary Clinton has been a national leader on gun violence prevention for decades," said Dan Gross, Executive Director of the Brady Campaign. "More than any candidate on either side of the aisle, she has the experience, record, and demonstrated commitment to help reach the Brady Campaign’s goal of cutting gun deaths in half by 2025."
