Regarding the shooting at the Santa Fe, Texas High School, May 18, 2018.

A Joint Statement by Texas Candidates awarded the

Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction

Our hearts break for all those affected by the horrific shooting that took place at Santa Fe High School. Nothing we write will diminish the grief and anguish sweeping over this community. Nothing can remove the fear that students across the nation feel every day as they go to school. No words can reassure parents dropping their children off at school that they won't lose them in what was once regarded as a safe haven.

It's time for effective action and leadership, not more thoughts and prayers. Every one of us is proud to have been granted a Candidate Distinction from the Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense organization. We mean to earn that today and every day by giving our full-throated support to their sensible proposals to end gun violence and promote gun safety, which include:

  1. Criminal background checks on all gun sales.
  2. Keeping guns out of the hands of domestic abusers.
  3. Red Flag Laws.
  4. Prohibiting bump stocks.
  5. Funding gun violence prevention research.
  6. Stopping permitless carry.
  7. Keeping guns out of schools and off college campuses.
  8. Stopping gun trafficking and straw purchasing.
  9. Promoting responsible gun storage and ownership.

Texans are ready to make the changes necessary to protect our children and each other. We look forward to working with folks in our own communities who are willing to stand up and fight the epidemic of gun violence that plagues us all. There's a role for all of us to play, and we encourage those who are interested to visit www.momsdemandaction.org.
