“I am saddened to have to issue this statement in response to my opponent’s politically opportunistic use of recent tragic events.”
DOYLESTOWN, PA – Marguerite Quinn, candidate for State Senate in the 10th District Pennsylvania, released the following statement in response to her opponent’s press conference on the issue of firearms:
“Today I watched a heartbroken father speak of the tragic shooting that occurred at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
“As a mother, I cannot imagine living with the reality of such devastating, senseless loss. We can’t allow the increase of these occurrences to desensitize us; instead we must work together to create lasting change.
“My record is clear: I voted for expanded background checks. I voted for lost and stolen reporting requirements. I voted to bring mental health records into the national background check system to keep guns out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them. I believe we need to address shortfalls in the mental health system and help school districts implement better safety measures.
“I am saddened to have to issue this statement in response to my opponent’s politically opportunistic use of recent tragic events. I have always worked in a pragmatic way to develop real solutions to real problems, and this will be no exception. I am inspired by the passion of all those making their voices heard and look forward to working with everyone to build consensus and move forward.”
