Washington, D.C., October 7, 2020 - Today, the Brady Campaign endorsed Jake Auchincloss in his campaign for election to the U.S. House of Representatives.
Brady Campaign President Kris Brown shared:
“Jake Auchincloss will be a strong leader for gun violence prevention in the U.S. House of Representatives. Auchincloss’ time in the U.S. Marine Corp, coupled with his service on the Newton City Council, has prepared him with a deep understanding of firearms, their role on and off the battlefield, and gun violence prevention policies. We look forward to working with him in Congress, where he will join a growing contingent of military and intelligence veterans who stand for gun safety, recognize gun violence as a public health crisis, and understand that weapons of war have no place in our communities. Auchincloss has the demonstrated leadership, experience, and vision to save American lives from gun violence. Brady is proud to endorse Jake Auchincloss for election to the U.S. House of Representatives.”
Jake Auchincloss shared:
“I am so proud to receive the endorsement of the Brady Campaign and to join with them in our shared goal of creating a safer America. As a combat veteran, I know assault weapons are not the ‘arms’ that our Founders had in mind when they wrote the Second Amendment. I will bring those values and that experience with me to Congress as we take on the NRA to make common-sense gun legislation a reality, including: assault-weapon buybacks, mandatory liability insurance for all weapons, Red Flag laws, and universal background checks. I am honored to stand with moms, students, veterans, community leaders, and public health officials to confront the gun lobby and end the American gun violence pandemic.”
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.
