Scott Peters’ Re-election Supported by Public and Gun Safety Groups, Veterans Advocates

November 2, 2018

San Diego — Today, the Scott Peters for Congress campaign released a new set of endorsements from public and gun safety advocacy groups, and the endorsement of local veterans advocates for Rep. Peters’ re-election.

Rep. Peters has been endorsed by the Brady Campaign and Giffords PAC, groups both dedicated to gun safety and better legislative fixes for the mass gun violence epidemic our nation faces. He has also been endorsed by the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC), made of more than 70,000 public safety officials who come together to discuss how to meet evolving public safety needs in our evolving world. He has also been endorsed by the Veterans Democratic Club of San Diego County, who advocate for the local needs of veterans, and work to elect officials who will do the same.

“Our nation is at a crossroads. It is time to stand up against gun violence and take care of our veterans and public safety officials. I am proud to receive endorsements from the Brady Campaign and the Giffords PAC, PORAC, and the Veterans Democratic Club of San Diego. With a strong alliance of local, state, and national groups advocating for changes that will make our communities safer and healthier, I know we can make real progress towards these shared goals,” said Rep. Peters.

Rep. Peters is focused on calling attention to the alarming rise of gun violence and veterans homelessness. In 2016, Rep. Peters broke congressional rules to livestream the House Democrats’ sit-in on the House floor following the Pulse nightclub shooting, giving the American public a window into their democracy. He has opposed conceal carry reciprocity, and called for a close to the gun show background check loophole. As a member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, and a member of its newest subcommittee focusing on electronic health records, Rep. Peters has called for more attention and funding on veterans homelessness and mental health.
