2022 Endorsed General Election Candidates

 

The G-PAC Board of Directors is proud to release its first round of endorsements leading up to the November 8, 2022 General Election.

To earn a gun safety endorsement, each candidate demonstrated strong support of the following policies:

  • Banning assault weapons 
  • Banning large-capacity magazines (LCMs)
  • Making ghost guns illegal, which G-PAC and Giffords helped pass into law earlier this year
  • Funding community violence intervention programs 
  • Funding a gun storage public awareness campaign

Each endorsed candidate supports our #1 legislative priority when the General Assembly is called into session: banning assault weapons and large-capacity magazines. These weapons of war have been shown to contribute to both city violence and mass shootings.
