Americans for Responsible Solutions, Nov 14th, 2015

November 14, 2015 – Americans for Responsible Solutions, the gun violence prevention organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, issued the following statement responding to the extensive discussion of gun violence and gun policy during tonight’s Democratic primary presidential debate:

“Voters are demanding to hear candidates’ plans for how we can make our country safer from gun violence, and fortunately, that’s exactly what voters got tonight. It was good to see the people running to be our Commander in Chief discuss some of the ways we can both prevent some of the 10,000 gun murders that happen in our country every year and protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners,” said Hayley Zachary, Executive Director of Americans for Responsible Solutions. “From now until November 2016, every debate, no matter the party, should include a responsible, serious discussion of how we can reduce the gun violence that is ripping so many of our communities apart.”
