New Yorkers Against Gun Violence Endorses James Kemmerer for State Senate

New York, NY--October 29, 2014--New Yorkers Against Gun Violence announced today its endorsement of James Kemmerer for NY State Senate (District 22).

Leah Gunn Barrett, NYAGV Executive Director, said, "We are proud to endorse James Kemmerer for State Senate. James will work for common sense approaches to protect New Yorkers from gun violence such as smart gun technology and a Child Access Prevention Law to keep our kids safe from guns in the home. He will also work to pass microstamping, “DNA for guns,” that will help law enforcement solve gun crimes.”

Barrett added, "Like us, James Kemmerer knows that smart gun laws save lives which is why New York has the fourth lowest gun death rate in the nation. We look forward to working with him in the upcoming legislative session to continue the tremendous progress our state has made to protect New Yorkers from the preventable scourge of gun violence."

Endorsements That Matter: Yours
For quite a few Saturdays after Hurricane Sandy struck, I went to help out at the Occupy Sandy kitchen set up in Bay Ridge. There was Jamie (joined by his wife Elisha and their baby son Jerome) running the kitchen week after week (long after I could no longer volunteer). This kitchen turned out thousands of meals for needy New Yorkers in a bitter and bleak winter. I’ll never forget what Jamie did for NYC and know how much more he has to give. Elect Jamie - a man of compassion and conviction.
