Letter to the editor: Choose Weiser for AG

Like many Coloradans, I remember just where I was when I learned the Columbine shooting happened. Although my children were very young, I still remember the horror I felt.

I thought nothing could ever again happen that would be that bad. Americans would never allow this type of traumatic event to occur another time. Unfortunately, years of continued school shootings showed I was very sadly wrong. But for the first time in a long time, I’m also seeing hope. I see it most of all in the students Marching for their Lives, who are reminding us all what a great movement looks like. And I’m also seeing it in the candidates who have been willing to step up and run for office. If we’re going to finally stop these senseless tragedies, we need leaders who will stand up to the NRA and protect our kids.

That’s why I’m supporting Phil Weiser for attorney general. Phil has taken a strong stand to ban bump stocks, enforce limits on magazine sizes, and get a “red flag” law to keep guns away from dangerous people. Additionally, he has the legal and leadership skills to protect our kids from gun violence.

Phil will bring that experience to the attorney general’s office.  He served as a law clerk to Justice Ginsburg on the Supreme Court and worked in the Justice Department for both Presidents Clinton and Obama.  And as the former dean and leader of CU’s law school, Phil brings both management experience and an ability to work across the aisle to this position.

Please join me in supporting Phil Weiser for Colorado attorney general and vote in the primary on June 26.
