Naomi Andrews Earns Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense Candidate Distinction

Epping, NH— Today, Naomi Andrews received the Candidate Distinction from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for stronger solutions to lax guns law and loopholes.  Moms Demand Action was founded in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy and is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country with more than four million supporters. 

“I am honored to receive the Candidate Distinction from Moms Demand Action. They are doing incredible work advocating for gun violence prevention measures, and I was proud to march with the NH and Maine chapters at the “Wear Orange” walk on June 1,” said Naomi Andrews. “Congress needs to pass common sense legislation that protects people’s Second Amendment rights while making our communities safer. 

I was outraged following the Parkland tragedy that the House Majority in Congress refused to even hold a hearing on the topic of school safety.  The Democrats on the House Education and Workforce Committee held a forum where we listened to a teacher from Parkland who courageously told her firsthand account of the mass shooting. Other witnesses also talked about making schools safer. This is a nonpartisan issue—the Republicans should have been there.   

I was deeply saddened when I heard one of the students in the Santa Fe school shooting say that she ‘wasn’t surprised’ that the shooting happened. These school shootings must not be accepted as part of living in America.  We can and we must do better for our children.”

Candidate Andrews supports universal background checks to make it easier to stop criminals or terrorists from purchasing firearms. She believes that stalkers who have threatened or abused their partners and are under a restraining order shouldn’t be allowed to purchase a firearm. Andrews knows that if someone is too dangerous to fly, that person shouldn’t be allowed to purchase a gun. She is committed to joining the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force after being election to Congress.
