Rep.-elect Tom Malinowski joined the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, California Rep. Mike Thompson, the group’s chairman, announced Wednesday.
“I am excited to join a dynamic group of leaders committed to passing common sense gun violence prevention measures,” Malinowski said. “In New Jersey, we have some the strictest gun control laws in the nation and an assault weapon ban that works. It’s time to reinstate the nationwide ban and commit ourselves to the difficult but essential task of passing the reforms we know save lives.”
Gun control was part of Malinowski’s platform in the 2018 campaign. He was endorsed by the Brady to Prevent Gun Violence. Former Rep. Gabby Giffords’ gun control group endorsed his then-opponent, Rep. Leonard Lance.
