The Kopser for Congress campaign released the following statement from The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence:

“As a candidate for Congress, Joseph Kopser is proactively and consistently promoting and supporting common sense gun policies to stop the flow of crime guns onto our streets, keep weapons of war and other guns out of dangerous hands, holding the gun industry accountable, ensuring that a public health approach is fortified with scientific-based research into gun violence prevention, and giving victims of gun violence their day in court both for criminal and civil justice. In a nation where 96 Americans die from gun violence every day, and more than 200 are injured by gunfire, now more than ever we need more politicians in office like Joseph Kopser, a true champion of common-sense gun policies that save lives.”

Joseph Kopser added the following statement:

“I am very proud to have earned the trust and support of the Brady Campaign, and to add them to our growing coalition of support in TX-21. The Brady Campaign has been working for decades to fight for sensible gun safety and I could not be prouder to stand with them in their mission to cut gun deaths in half by 2025.”

This endorsement adds to a growing list of leading Democratic Party leaders and institution organizations supporting Joseph Kopser including Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, Commissioner Garry Mauro, Jason Kander, Paul Begala, and Matt Angle. They join institutional supporters supporting Kopser for Congress, including Vote Vets PAC, 314 Action Fund, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, Congressman Seth Moulton, and the Texas Lone Star Project.
