Laura Fortgang Awarded Guns Sense Candidate Distinction
LD 26 Democrat Selected for Moms Demand Action Designation
VERONA, NJ (Aug. 19, 2019)—Laura Fortgang, the Democratic candidate for New Jersey State Assembly in the 26th Legislative District, has been selected for the 2019 Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate Distinction.
The Distinction recognizes that a candidate stands for gun safety and is committed to governing with gun safety in mind if elected.
“When our daily worries include whether our children or ourselves will be safe at school, at the mall, the movie theater or anywhere people gather in numbers because a shooter could be a likely circumstance, we have gone too far,” Fortgang said. “I am proud to have the Gun Sense Distinction and will fight for common sense gun laws. New Jersey has some of the strongest gun safety laws but with seventy-five percent of New Jersey gun crimes being committed with guns secured out of state, we stil have work to do,” Fortgang said.
