*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***
My Republican opponent who claims to be leading in the polls is boasting about receiving an “A” grade from the NRA. But what’s worse: he ends a public statement about the NRA endorsing him by telling Californians to “Mount up!”
As my opponent put it,”I have only one thing to say to gun owners as we head toward election day — ‘Mount Up!'”
This is dangerous rhetoric.
CNN reported this week that we’ve had 57 times as many school shootings in America than in all other industrialized nations, combined, since 2009. This figure, along with the gun violence that’s prevalent on our streets, should make us all cringe — and demand solutions.
Can you chip in $5 today to help me in our fight to prevent gun violence?
One innocent life lost is too many.
In California, we’ve taken on the gun lobby and won.
Our special agents travel across California every week to confiscate illegally held weapons. This is a one-of-a-kind program. In some instances, our agents enter homes expecting to find two illegal weapons and instead find dozens.
We’re doing something right in California to have received a “F”!
But I can’t continue this effort to advance gun safety alone, especially with my Republican opponent telling his supporters through a public statement to “Mount up!”
Will you give $5 to stand with me for gun safety?
