Washington, D.C., August 31, 2020 - Today, the Brady Campaign endorsed Jon Ossoff in his campaign to represent Georgia in the United States Senate.
Brady Campaign President Kris Brown shared:
“Throughout his career, Jon Ossoff has demonstrated that he will act in the best interests of Georgians and the American people. Ossoff brings this same clarity and initiative to the effort to prevent gun violence. He understands that gun violence affects all Georgians and will work in the U.S. Senate to keep our communities safe. Jon Ossoff supports common-sense policies such as universal background checks and extreme risk protection order laws to temporarily remove firearms from individuals who are a proven threat to themselves or others. Ossoff represents Brady’s motto of ‘take action, not sides’ in his support for policies that respect all Americans’ Second Amendment rights while making our country safer. Brady is proud to endorse Jon Ossoff in his campaign for the U.S. Senate.”
Jon Ossoff shared:
“A clear majority of Georgians support reforms to reduce injuries and deaths from gun violence while protecting the Second Amendment right to bear arms, and the shocking level of gun violence in America today makes plain the need for gun safety reforms. I look forward to working with the Brady Campaign to enact the common-sense gun safety reforms we need to protect our families and communities.”
Jon Ossoff supports common-sense policies such as universal background checks, a federal extreme risk protection order law, and closing loopholes that allow individuals to purchase firearms at gun shows without a background check - all policies that respect the rights of responsible Americans while helping to keep our communities safe. Jon Ossoff will work for Georgians in the U.S. Senate, not the gun lobby, part of why he has pledged not to accept any campaign contributions from the gun industry. We need a champion like Jon Ossoff in the U.S. Senate.
Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
