“ERPO will be a lifesaving tool in Oregon. By giving law enforcement and family members the tools to remove guns from those at risk of harming themselves or others, ERPO is a step towards reducing gun violence in all its forms. Sensible policies like Extreme Risk Protection Orders allow those on the front lines to take action and remove firearms before tragedy strikes. We would like to thank Senator Burdick and her staff for all of their hard work on this important legislation. We encourage Governor Brown to sign this lifesaving measure into law.
“Gun violence does not discriminate. It is not black or white. It is not gay or straight. It is not Republican or Democrat. We must come together to reject hate in all its forms while working to ensure that hateful, dangerous individuals do not have access to weapons of war. The easy accessibility of highly lethal weapons turns nightclubs into slaughterhouses, churches into graveyards, and baseball fields into war zones.
“Tonight’s results reaffirm what many of us already knew: gun violence prevention is a winning issue in Virginia. Long before it was politically expedient, Ralph Northam supported lifesaving gun violence prevention policies. He has been a leader in our movement for many years, and I am extremely heartened to see Virginians choose him as their Democratic nominee for governor.”
“At a time when the Trump campaign’s connections to the Kremlin are dominating the conversation in Washington, it is shocking to see the administration bring on yet another person with dubious ties to the Russian government. As the Mueller investigation begins, it is important to ask where Sheriff Clarke and the NRA fit into all this.”
