Something new every week.

by Suzanne Bonamici

Donald Trump has a new and dangerous idea every week.

He claims he can shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue and still get elected.

He encourages violence at his rallies.

And now, he has called for “second amendment people” to do something about Hillary Clinton if she is elected.

He played his threat off like a joke – but people take what candidates say seriously.

There's already too much violence in our country. And in the wake of the horrific mass shootings, from Roseburg to Orlando, we need a President who will take meaningful action to end gun violence, not incite it.

This election is not just about different policies and priorities. It’s about the basic values we hold dear as a country. Violence has no place in our democracy. It’s up to us to stand up for our values.

Thank you for standing with me.
