On Tuesday, Jana Lynne Sanchez was distinguished as a “Gun Sense Candidate” by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

“I am very proud to receive this recognition.  I exercise my right to own a firearm, but I am a firm believer that with rights come responsibilities. I stand with Moms Demand Action and the majority of Americans who believe in common sense gun laws. If I am elected, I will fight for those sensible gun laws and will not be swayed by the gun lobby,” Sanchez said.

Among other gun safety issues, Sanchez highlighted her opposition to Concealed Carry Reciprocity, which would force all states to abide by the weakest concealed carry laws in the country. She also believes in universal background checks and prohibiting domestic abusers from buying guns.

In the words of Moms Demand Action:


Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for new and stronger solutions to lax gun laws and loopholes. Since its inception after the tragedy at Sandy Hook School, Moms Demand Action has established a chapter in every state of the country and, along with Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the Everytown Survivor Network, is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country with more than four million supporters.
