Why Texas?

Texas voters have made it clear that support for gun safety legislation is at the top of the list when it comes to the 2020 election. A recent survey from Everytown found that:

  • Texas voters support stronger gun laws by a 5:1 margin (51% stronger/9% less strong). And in battleground districts, voters support stronger gun laws by an even larger 54% to 10% margin. 
  • Vast majorities of voters statewide and in battleground districts — including undecided voters, gun owners, Latino voters and suburban women — support individual gun safety measures, including blocking domestic abusers from having guns (91% statewide; 89% in battleground districts), requiring background checks on all gun sales (87% statewide; 82% in battleground districts), and red flag laws (80% statewide; 77% in battleground districts).
  • Sixty percent of voters, including a majority of Republican women (57%) and voters in battleground districts (58%) say they would never vote for a candidate who doesn’t support background checks on all gun sales. Compared with other candidate positions on issues like health care, national security and immigration, opposition to background checks on all gun sales is the single most disqualifying candidate position among suburban women by a nine-point margin, and tied for the top among Latino voters by a three-point margin.

For too long, Republicans in the state have failed to address gun violence, putting the safety of our kids and communities at risk, and making it harder for all Texans to get ahead. With the announcement of “Gun Sense Majority: Texas,” we are launching an unprecedented financial and grassroots effort that will begin with making important gains in the state House, defending recently elected Texas gun sense champions in the U.S. House, flipping key congressional seats in the suburbs, and growing the voting electorate in order to make Texas competitive up and down the ballot.
