Joseph Kopser

Candidate for US House of Representatives, (TX-21)

Current officeholder: Lamar smith (r)

Next election: November 6, 2018

The leadership of the National Rifle Association has developed into little more than a hired bully for gun manufacturers. NRA lobbyist Wayne LaPierre and his ilk bully Republican members of Congress into a corner, and it is unacceptable. It is unacceptable to the parents who have lost countless memories and birthdays with their children. It is unacceptable to the communities who have been forever broken by avoidable tragedies that have hit them at home. It is unacceptable to the teachers and administrators, the movie watchers and mall shoppers, and to the town hall visitors and members of Congress who have fallen victim to gun violence by those who never should have had a weapon in the first place. And it is unacceptable to me.

In the United States Army, we are trained to stand up to bullies. I fought bullies when I volunteered to go to Iraq. And when I go to Congress I will stand up to the bullying tactics of the NRA because not one more life lost prematurely is acceptable.

I’m heartbroken, angry, and disgusted by what happened at Santa Fe High School. While our thoughts & prayers are with the victims and their families, that simply isn’t enough. We can say #NeverAgain over and over, but we need action - NOW. Our young students shouldn’t be going to school in fear - they should go knowing that their country is doing everything possible to ensure their safety. It will always be appropriate to discuss protecting our children’s lives. Congress should act NOW and pass common sense gun reform. We have to do more so that our communities don’t continue to endure senseless
