Andrew is the only candidate who has fought the powerful gun lobby in court and won. Since 2014, he has been involved in a legal battle against the gun lobby, including the National Rifle Association to protect a law that bans firing a weapon in a city park, where our kids play and our families picnic. Earlier this year, Andrew won.
To protect against this kind of extreme overreach, Andrew founded the Campaign to Defend Local Solutions, a national coalition of organizations, advocates, and elected officials focused on fighting back pre-emption and allowing local communities the ability to pass local policies that keep their communities safe.
After extreme state legislators and the corporate gun lobby proposed more bills that failed to solve the gun violence problem in Florida, Andrew called for a moratorium on all gun deregulation legislation until our leaders can come together to address the real issue: gun violence. He believes that no mother or grandmother should fear walking into an airport. No father, son, or daughter should lose their life for meeting those they love for a night out. No parent should lose sleep wondering if a stray bullet will take their baby that day.
As Governor, Andrew will never back down from commonsense solutions to keep our streets, parks and schools safe from gun violence.
