Washington D.C., July 16, 2020--Today, the Brady Campaign endorsed Rep. JA Moore (SC State House-15) for re-election to the South Carolina House of Representatives.
Brady Campaign President Kris Brown said:
“Rep. JA Moore understands that reducing gun violence and protecting the Second Amendment are not mutually exclusive. Rep. Moore’s bipartisan approach to common-sense gun violence prevention policies is why he supports safe storage laws, advocates for extreme risk protection orders, and rejects permit-less carry rules. He also knows the personal impact of gun violence, as his sister was one of the Emanuel Nine who were murdered in the mass shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in 2015. This experience led Rep. Moore to co-sponsor H.3248, which extends the waiting period on background checks and would have prevented the Mother Emanuel shooting. Brady is proud to endorse Rep. JA Moore for re-election to the South Carolina House of Representatives.”
Representative JA Moore shared:
"It is an honor to be endorsed by Brady. I am committed to pushing legislation that will reduce gun violence in South Carolina and across this country. It is unacceptable that a nation as developed as ours experiences the amount of gun violence that we do."
Rep. JA Moore has made gun-violence prevention a central issue during his time in the South Carolina State House. We are confident that he will continue to work for the most underrepresented people of South Carolina, and make the important changes necessary to support his community. Once again, Brady is proud to endorse Rep. JA Moore for re-election to the South Carolina House of Representatives.
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.
