Brady United to Prevent Gun Violence has announced its endorsement of Congressman Steve Cohen for re-election in Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District.
In a press release found here, Brady President Kris Brown wrote of Congressman Cohen and several other members of the House Judiciary Committee:
“Recognizing their tireless work to prevent gun violence as members of the House Judiciary Committee, Brady is proud to endorse these eight Representatives in their campaigns for re-election. These members ensure that the safety of all Americans is placed above partisanship, bringing forward common-sense gun safety policies that will save laws. From expanding and strengthening the Brady Background Check System and keeping guns out of the hands of people who commit violent hate crimes, to legislation to end the sale of high-capacity magazines, the House Judiciary Committee has advanced bills that will make our nation safer. Their work is essential. We need each of these eight representatives continuing that effort in the 117th Congress.”
Founded 46 years ago as the National Council to Control Handguns, the Brady Campaign has become one of the world’s leading organizations, with 90 grass roots chapters in major cities across the United States.
