Christina Hale is a Gun Sense Champion Who Will Fight for Common-Sense Gun Safety Measures in Congress
New Polling Shows Americans’ Support for Gun Safety Measures Has Surged Amid Coronavirus Pandemic
NEW YORK – Today, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund endorsed Christina Hale for Congress in Indiana’s fifth congressional district. Hale has received the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate Distinction, a prerequisite for being considered for endorsement.
Christina Hale is running on a gun safety platform that includes support for background checks on all gun sales and other common-sense gun safety measures.
“The data makes one thing crystal clear — gun safety is going to be a winning issue in each and every competitive race this year,” said Charlie Kelly, senior political advisor for Everytown for Gun Safety. “These endorsements are the first step in our election efforts, which will be a devastating one-two punch, combining unprecedented resources and unmatched grassroots power to send gun sense candidates from across the country to Washington.”
“Gun violence has continued even amid the coronavirus pandemic,” said Beth Sprunger, a volunteer with the Indiana chapter of Moms Demand Action. “Indiana needs lawmakers who are willing to fight for gun safety in Washington — Christina Hale is the perfect candidate to help prevent senseless gun violence in Indiana communities.”
Polling released last week demonstrates the surging intensity of Americans’ support for common-sense gun safety measures during the coronavirus pandemic, with a significant majority of Americans viewing background checks on all gun sales and disarming domestic abusers “more important” now than before the pandemic began.
Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund and Victory Fund plan to spend at least $60 million on the 2020 elections — double what they spent during the 2018 elections, and more than any gun safety opponent, including the NRA, reported spending on the 2016 elections.
