About Conor LambRead Press Release
Congressman Conor Lamb grew up in Pittsburgh and followed in the footsteps of several family members by entering public service. Before being sworn into office, Congressman Lamb was a judge advocate in the Marine Corps and an assistant US attorney in the Department of Justice, prosecuting crimes ranging from gun trafficking to sexual assault.
While running for Congress in 2018, Congressman Lamb made gun safety a priority, joining Giffords co-founder Captain Mark Kelly for a gun safety town hall and calling out politicians who were beholden to the gun lobby instead of their constituents. In Congress, his vote was key to passing the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 to expand universal background checks. As Congressman Lamb continues to prove with his advocacy and work in office, gun safety is a winning issue in swing districts like his.
