Giffords Endorses Wes Moore for Maryland Governor
Giffords joins a growing list of endorsers to the Wes Moore for Maryland campaign
‘I will work tirelessly to make our communities safer by fighting to take dangerous guns off the streets and passing much-needed public safety measures,’ says Moore
BALTIMORE (Oct. 25, 2022) – Today, Giffords endorsed Wes Moore in the 2022 Maryland Gubernatorial Election.
“I will work tirelessly to make our communities safer by fighting to take dangerous guns off the streets and passing much-needed public safety measures,” said Wes Moore. “I’ve served in combat, I know more than most what these weapons of war are capable of, which is exactly why I know we have to get them off our streets. The gun violence epidemic has gone on far too long in this country, and we must fight back with commonsense gun policies to curb gun violence across the state of Maryland. I’m grateful to have Giffords alongside me in this mission.”
“Wes Moore understands that a top priority for any governor is to keep their constituents safe,” said Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. “As a veteran, he knows the value of responsible gun ownership and protecting the lives of children and families. If elected, Wes Moore will support necessary gun safety measures like implementing child access prevention legislation to ensure the safety of Marylanders. I am proud to stand behind Wes Moore in his bid for governor.”
As governor, Wes Moore will aggressively combat gun violence by building strong partnerships across state, local and federal law enforcement agencies, banning ghost guns and investing in proven community-based violence intervention programs. See his full plan here.
