Gabby Giffords Responds to Trump's NRA Convention Speech
TUCSON, AZ -- Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the Co-Founder of the gun violence prevention organization Americans for Responsible Solutions, released the below statement today following President Donald Trump’s speech at the NRA convention.
STATEMENT FROM CONGRESSWOMAN GIFFORDS
“It is possible to build a safer America, where the rights of law-abiding gun owners are protected and where everyone lives without fear of gun violence. But to do that, we need a president who is serious about finding solutions that will save lives and address the gun violence crisis that’s plaguing our nation. Unfortunately, that’s not the president we saw on stage this afternoon in Atlanta. An overwhelming majority of Americans — including the majority of gun owners — believe we should work together to take commonsense steps to prevent gun violence. It’s time for our elected officials to listen to the American people, protect our communities, and reject the gun lobby's extreme agenda."
