Every day, 310 Americans are victims of gun violence. Since 2016, America has experienced five of the ten worst mass shootings in our country’s history. This is unacceptable. At a time of crisis in communities across the nation, thoughts and prayers are not enough. David’s first vote on legislation as an Assemblyman was for the NY SAFE Act – the strongest gun control law in our nation. As a Congressman, David will push for a national SAFE Act to ban assault weapons and get dangerous weapons off our streets.
The first bill David voted for as a State Assemblymember was for the New York SAFE Act banned assault weapons, expanded background checks, and provided New Yorkers with the strongest gun safety law in our nation. He has sponsored and voted for additional gun safety measures since then, ranging from a statewide safe storage law that built on Westchester County’s successful efforts to New York’s Extreme Risk Protection (i.e. Red Flag) law. In Washington, he will sponsor a national SAFE Act to make sure policies like these protect all Americans.
David has never been afraid of the NRA – he won his Assembly seat by taking on and defeating an incumbent Tea Party Republican and has always rejected the gun lobby’s warped view of the 2nd Amendment. In Congress, he is ready to stand up for common sense, with a real gun safety agenda for all Americans.
David’s a proven leader who knows what it takes to pass real gun safety legislation. In Congress, he’ll stand up to the NRA and fight for tougher gun laws. David Buchwald is the right candidate for New York’s 17th Congressional District.
