Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, and former Vice President Joe Biden appeared in the video from Giffords: Courage To Fight Gun Violence, a gun violence prevention group.
Its message is that “our kids deserve to be safe at school” and pushes for a #GunSafetyPresident. On Tuesday morning, the hashtag was trending on Twitter.
In the video, each of the candidates say part of a script before it flashes to the next person. The candidates promise to act in “bold” ways to combat gun violence, specifically in schools.
Giffords: Courage To Fight Gun Violence says the video is one of several that will be released in the coming weeks.
“Our Gun Safety President campaign frames a critical and historic choice for our nation,” Rep. Giffords said in a statement. “We can continue with the corrupt leadership of Donald Trump, who has taken millions from the NRA while opposing gun safety policies—or we can forge a new path and elect a gun safety president who’s willing to stand up to the gun lobby and protect our kids and communities from gun violence. This campaign will give Americans a closer look at just how committed the candidates running against Trump are in the fight to save lives.”
Last month, a different gun advocacy group ran a series of television ads calling on Republicans to “stand up to the gun lobby” and pass gun reform laws.
