October 19, 2017 —  Giffords, the gun violence prevention organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and retired NASA astronaut Captain Mark Kelly, announced its endorsement today of Oregon Governor Kate Brown for re-election. As governor, Kate Brown has been a strong advocate for responsible gun violence prevention policies that have made Oregon safer.

Governor Kate Brown:

The endorsement of Governor Brown comes on the heels of a failed attempt by extreme Oregon activists to repeal SB 719, which creates a process for obtaining an Extreme Risk Protection Order that prohibits a person who is in danger of hurting themselves or others from possessing a firearm. Earlier this year, members of the Oregon Coalition for Common Sense testified on behalf of Senate Bill 719 and urged Oregon’s leaders to pass the bill, which was eventually signed into law this fall by Governor Brown.
