I’m so proud to support State Sen. Anna Kaplan’s campaign for re-election to New York State Senate District 7. We have experienced an unprecedented and unacceptable rise in gun violence over the last two decades. Since 2009, there have been 281 mass shootings in the United States. Everyday 12 children die from gun violence in America. When a gun is present in a domestic violence situation, a woman is five times more likely to be killed.
The Republican Party has been in the pocket of the NRA for far too long, and we cannot stand on the sidelines and allow these extremists to make our communities less safe. It is past time that we take serious action to hold gun lobbyists accountable and stop these preventable tragedies.
Sen. Anna Kaplan is a champion of common-sense gun safety. She wrote the law that gets untraceable ghost guns out of our community and has delivered more than $200 million for gun violence prevention programming. All our families deserve to feel safe in our schools, on our streets, and in our houses of worship.
No legislator has a better track record of keeping our community and our families safe than Sen. Anna Kaplan. Please join me in voting to re-elect our state Sen. Anna Kaplan in the general election on Nov. 8.
