Mikie Sherrill

US House New Jersey — 11th District Democrat
Representative Mikie Sherrill has always put service to her country and community first. She came to Congress with extensive experience handling firearms and a deep, nuanced understanding of the need to end America’s gun violence epidemic. In the US Navy, she qualified as an expert shot in the M-16, Colt .45, and 9mm Beretta—learning firsthand the skill and care with which firearms must be handled. As an assistant US attorney in New Jersey, Congresswoman Sherrill witnessed the devastating impact illegal weapons were having on her state’s communities—as weak gun laws in neighboring states hampered the impact of New Jersey’s strong gun safety standards—and recognized the need for federal action. Never one to sit on the sidelines, Representative Sherrill took action by running for Congress and flipping a red district blue in 2018. 
In office, Congresswoman Sherrill has pushed for commonsense gun safety measures while also protecting the Second Amendment rights of responsible gun owners. She co-sponsored and voted to pass the Bipartisan Background Checks Act to extend background checks to all gun sales, and has consistently advocated for legislation that would keep deadly weapons out of the hands of individuals who have committed domestic abuse. Representative Sherrill also voted to ban bump stocks, which are marketed to shooters seeking to convert their weapon to simulate the rapid, continuous fire of an automatic firearm, and she was a leading voice in the charge to secure funding for research into gun violence.
Congresswoman Sherrill understands that preventing gun violence requires coordination from national, state, and local governments alongside our communities and law enforcement. This bold, sensible approach is needed in Congress more than ever, and we must reelect Representative Mikie Sherrill for another term this November. With gun safety champions like her in office, we know we can ensure a better future free of gun violence for the next generation of New Jerseyans. 

We are proud to endorse Mikie Sherill for the US House of Representatives.
