The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence endorsed U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez on Thursday.
“The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence is proud to have endorsed Senator Bob Menendez because of his long history as a gun violence prevention champion,” said Ky Hunter, the group’s vice president of programs. “He took the fight to the gun lobby well before most others were willing to engage. We are excited to continue to work with Senator Menendez as a leading champion in the gun violence prevention movement.”
Menendez backs gun control provisions like bans on assault-style weapons, high capacity magazines and 3D-printed guns.
Like his opponent, Bob Hugin, Menendez backs universal background checks for gun sales.
