Lawmakers have failed us too many times, so we’re going to replace them with candidates with a proven track record of fighting the gun lobby and for gun safety. Are you a @MomsDemand or @StudentsDemand volunteer ready to #DemandASeat? Sign up at demandaseat.org

Very excited for this @kmurphyva ad in my mailbox today. A few years ago, laws like background checks were a far away dream in Virginia. As founder of the Gun Violence Prevention caucus, she helped make those dreams a reality. We can’t go back. @MomsDemand #VALeg

Just sitting at the community theatre, waiting to go onstage, and texting to ask about guns before my oldest goes to a new friend's house. You can take the @MomsDemand volunteer out of the red shirt but you can't take the safety concerns out of the mom.

"Data released by the San Francisco Police Department does not support the explanation announced by Walgreens that it is closing five stores because of organized, rampant retail theft." #caleg
With the store closures, Walgreens has landed in one of the most divisive battles in S.F. Lost in the conversation are customers, who have grown impatient with locked shelves and other security measures, and the specter of fewer stores. trib.al/4oQgmqU

A shooting took place in 2019 at the same stadium in Alabama, wounding nine people. After that shooting, metal detectors were installed, but it appears someone with a gun made it through the metal detectors at tonight’s game. #alpol

A woman left a Des Moines bar with a man she met that night; he showed her a handgun he keeps in his car. She then grabbed the gun and randomly fired several shots out the car window. Permitless carry went into effect in July in Iowa. apnews.com/article/shootings…

A Washington state father was shot in the head and wounded while driving his two children around a neighborhood and trying to get them to sleep. He looked “suspicious” to the 23-year-old man who shot him. #waleg thenewstribune.com/news/nati…

Youngkin is a lifetime NRA member, but refuses to say what he’d do on guns as Governor. Youngkin dogwhistles on race, but pretends he hasn’t embraced Donald Trump and his extremist base. Youngkin acts as though he isn’t spreading the big lie, but then hires this guy… #vagov
Shannon is lying, the only candidate in the race who claimed an election was stolen is Terry McAuliffe.

Virginia gubernatorial candidate @GlennYoungkin has spent his entire campaign peddling the big lie. THIS is what the big lie results in: violent insurrections by domestic terrorists. #vagov

I want a reporter to get an NRA exec or a Congressional ally on record: Do they think guns should be allowed on planes? How do they say no? They support them on all other transportation, they no longer support permits, they say guns always make us safer. time.com/6107066/guns-on-pla…
