I’ve taken on the gun lobby and those beholden to it, like Virginia’s Republican ticket. If the NRA and the gun lobby continue to oppose gun reform, then I will continue to stand against them in court.
As gun violence spikes in communities across America, the US Senate has yet to vote on @POTUS’s nominee to lead ATF, a position central to the administration’s efforts to combat violent crime.
Had the opportunity to discuss #GunViolence prevention yesterday with @TerryMcAuliffe, @GabbyGiffords and other incredible leaders across VA. There is no one solution to this public health problem, but together we can come up with a comprehensive approach that will save lives.
As a proud Virginian, it was empowering to talk #GunViolence prevention yesterday with @TerryMcAuliffe, @GabbyGiffords @MarkHerringVA @HalaAyala @JosephSakran and other VA leaders. This crisis desperately needs a robust strategy that prioritizes those impacted. #EndGunViolence
Literally today Attorney General Garland launched gun trafficking strike forces in 5 cities to address illegal trafficking and prosecuting offenses that help put guns in the hands of criminals. @SenTomCotton, please call your office.

“Enough is enough" on gun violence - join us and many of the largest health systems in the country as we mobilize to support @JoeBiden plan of dedicated funding for gun violence prevention
With gun violence on the rise in Virginia, the state needs courageous leaders who will take action. That’s why I’m standing with Virginians to help elect @TerryMcAuliffe, @HalaAyala, and @MarkHerringVA—public servants who’ve spent their lives fighting for safety.
When I was 19, my father was killed. I know the pain and trauma that gun violence brings and I'm determined to keep Nevada families safe. Recently, I spoke w/@8NewsNow about my bill to #BreaktheCycle of violence & build new opportunities for youth. Watch:
Incredibly honored to be with my friend Congresswoman @GabbyGiffords this morning to discuss how we can end gun violence here in Virginia. Gabby’s story is one of hope, resilience, and strength. I am proud to stand with her in this fight.
Great conversation with our Democratic ticket, @GabbyGiffords and activists about combating gun violence here in Virginia. Together, we are going to confront the gun violence epidemic head on. Even one preventable death is too many.
How does @gregoryjackson respond to the criticism that community violence interruption programs take up too many resources? He encourages people to look at the real cost of violence, because “the dollars are there, the urgency is not.”
Curious to learn more about community-based violence interruption programs? Hear from our Advocacy Director, @gregoryjackson, on the @MehdiHasanShow as he discusses these important programs that are a solution in the fight to #EndGunViolence.
Nine years ago, 24-year-old Alex Teves went to see a movie and never returned home. His life was cut short when he shielded his girlfriend from gunfire during the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
It's been 9 years since 12 people went to a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado and never came home. 70 other people were injured—some can no longer walk. We know there are policies that would prevent tragedies like this. We owe it to the victims and survivors to fight for them.
Mass shootings are getting worse. How much worse must they get before we get tough on week gun laws?
I counted 9 kids shot over the weekend in Philadelphia, which includes a 1yo, a 14yo, a 15yo, three 16yos and three 17yos. @KYWNewsradio
