STATEMENT FROM MARIT BROCK VOLUNTEER CHAPTER LEADER WITH THE MINNESOTA OF MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA:

“Minnesota moms have been working hard to advance common sense gun legislation in our state – and at the caucuses, we’ll be talking with voters about electing candidates who support life-saving public safety measures. Today, more than 200 local volunteers will show up at more than 150 precincts to talk about gun violence prevention and why voters should keep gun sense in mind when deciding how to cast their vote. This isn’t a partisan issue here in Minnesota—we know that 82 percent of Minnesotans support common sense reforms like background checks on all gun sales. We’re excited to educate voters about where the candidates stand – and why it’s critical for them to vote with gun sense.”
