NEW YORK – Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a part of Everytown, released the following statement today on reports that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) will not run for reelection in 2018.
STATEMENT FROM JOHN FEINBLATT, PRESIDENT OF EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY:
“Yet another NRA-backed politician who has bucked a majority of law enforcement in order to support the NRA’s dangerous agenda has decided to step down from Congress rather than face his constituents, who strongly support gun safety. In 2018, we will be supporting candidates across the country who are willing to reject the NRA’s dangerous agenda and stand up for public safety. This year, you will see a gun safety sweep in elections across the country.”
In December 2017, Rep. Issa voted for the NRA’s top priority legislation to undermine state gun laws, “The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017.”
