The pressure is working. VIRGINIA ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK HERRING.



Parkland. Virginia Tech. Sandy Hook. Charleston. Orlando. Las Vegas. Aurora. Columbine. We will continue to relive this nightmare until politicians care more about people's lives than they do about the gun lobby.
But I’m as hopeful for change as I’ve ever been.
A new generation of inspiring young leaders is cutting through the noise and turning up the heat on politicians and the gun lobby…and they’re getting results.  
The gun lobby and the NRA are losing power and influence every day when they push crazy schemes to arm teachers instead of the most reasonable and broadly supported measures to prevent gun violence.

✔ Universal background checks
✔ A return to Virginia’s one handgun per month law
✔ Banning high capacity magazines and bump stocks
✔ Reinstating the assault weapons ban to help keep weapons of war off our streets
✔ Gun Violence Restraining Orders to get guns away from people in a crisis

Last year I ran on these ideas, and with your help and support, I was re-elected by an even bigger margin than the first time, despite millions in NRA money for my opponent.
The mid-terms are just a few months away, and if you want action on gun violence, you’ve got to vote for it. Because the only way we’re going to get anything done is by making politicians more afraid of voters than they are of the gun lobby.
Thanks for standing with me in this fight,
Mark
