She is in lockstep with the gun lobby and out of step with the Iowans she wants to represent.”

The ad is backed by a six-figure buy and will air through Election Day on broadcast and cable.

TRANSCRIPT: ”Wrong”

STORY COUNTY SHERIFF PAUL FITZGERALD: ”I’ve been around guns all my life. It’s dangerous when a convicted felon or a domestic abuser gets their hands on one. But Joni Ernst won’t vote to close the loophole that lets some dangerous people still get guns. I know Joni Ernst gets a lot of money from folks in Washington that support this loophole. But she’s wrong to put Washington money before Iowa common sense.”

Gabby Giffords Statement on School Shooting in Marysville, Washington

October 24, 2014- Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Co-Founder of Americans for Responsible Solutions, issued the below statement following Friday’s shooting at Marysville Pilchuck High School in Marysville, Washington:

”It was just two days ago that I was in Washington State to meet with local leaders to discuss how we can make our communities safer from gun violence. So it is especially heartbreaking to learn that one of Washington’s schools has now become the scene of yet another senseless act of gun violence. Our schools are supposed to be a place of safety, but far too often they are a place of gun violence and horror. While we still don’t know all the details, we know that the loss of young, innocent lives is both tragic – and unacceptable. Mark and I are praying for the families of those who were lost and for strength for the wounded. We are holding the entire Marysville community in our thoughts and prayers.”
