“Trump is so deep in the gun lobby’s pocket that he can no longer see daylight,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “Every day, gun violence kills over 100 Americans and wounds twice as many more, but the person ultimately responsible for our safety won’t even agree to fund the gun violence research approved by Congress. We must defeat Trump this November and elect a president who will fight for our families –– not for the gun lobby.”
Everytown Action Fund and Victory Fund plan to spend $60 million on an electoral program for 2020. Everytown, Moms Demand Action, and Students Demand Action will work tirelessly to replace President Trump with a new Gun Sense president.
