Top gun safety group endorses Kim

Brady backs 3rd district congressman for re-election

By David Wildstein, December 09 2019 2:43 pm

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has endorsed Rep. Andy Kim (D-Marlton) for re-election to a second term in Congress.

“Andy Kim is a much needed independent voice in Washington, clearly responding to the interests of his constituents and the country,” said Brady president Kris Brown.  “It’s why he has been a strong advocate for commonsense gun violence legislation.”

Brown pointed to Kim’s votes support of enhanced background checks and his co-sponsorship of legislation to reduce gun violence.

“Kim has championed these issues because he knows that they matter to his constituents,” Brown said.  “Gun violence is a threat in every community, including New Jersey’s third congressional district and, as a father and as a representative of his state and constituents, he knows we can’t accept the status quo.”

Kim, a former Obama White House aide, unseated two-term Republican Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-Toms River) in 2018 in the state’s closest House race.  He is now at the top of the GOP target list in his bid for another term.

“I was in high school during the Columbine shootings and have seen a generation raised in an era of school shootings,” Kim said. “I want to do everything I can do to make sure that my two baby boys don’t have to grow up afraid of going to school because Congress hasn’t acted on commonsense gun safety laws.”
