White House Collaboration and Commitment to Working with the Gun Safety Movement Draws Praise from Giffords

Washington, DC — Today, Giffords, the gun safety group started by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, expressed optimism that the White House will soon take needed action on gun violence prevention following a convening of major gun safety advocates. Giffords Executive Director Peter Ambler took part in the meeting.

Peter Ambler, Giffords Executive Director: 

“Commonsense measures to protect Americans from gun violence are among the most unifying and popular elements of this administration’s agenda. President Biden is committed to taking executive action and working with Congress to put in place reforms that will keep this country’s kids and communities safe. Today’s meeting was a strong affirmation of that commitment.

“In 2013, after gun safety stalled in the Senate, President Biden stood by former Congresswoman Giffords and vowed to fight the gun lobby and that the time would come for change. That moment has arrived. Giffords stands ready to work with leaders in the White House and across the administration to pass universal background checks and implement other policies that will curb the gun violence epidemic ravaging communities across the country.”
