Washington, April 9, 2020
These elected representatives from California are part of the group who sent this to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
They want the Department of Homeland Security to remove gun retailers and manufacturers from the list of essential businesses in its guidance to local and state officials in containing the spread of COVID-19. Firearm distributors provide no proven public health benefit, and in fact, the proliferation of guns pose added safety threats to communities.
Remember these names during our election cycle.
Among the Members signing the letter: Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-13); Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (CA-32); Rep. Jerry McNerney (CA-09); Rep. Julia Brownley (CA-26)
