About Elissa SlotkinRead Press Release
Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin has dedicated her career to national service. She was in graduate school on September 11, 2001, and the attacks on America motivated her to join the Central Intelligence Agency as an analyst. She served three tours in Iraq and worked on critical national security issues in both the Bush and Obama administrations.
As someone who grew up in a gun-owning family and carried a pistol and M-4 for protection in Iraq, Representative Slotkin knows that support for the Second Amendment can be balanced with commonsense measures to keep our communities safe from gun violence. In Congress, she has supported bipartisan bills to require a background check on all gun sales and keep firearms out of the hands of domestic abusers and stalkers.
