Taking the Fight to the NRA

*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***

Today I joined tens of thousands across California in marching to demand sensible gun safety laws to protect our schools, communities and homes! #MarchForOurLives

At the Sacramento Press Club debate earlier this week, I asked my opponents in the race for Attorney General to repudiate any endorsement from the NRA and return any contributions from the NRA and from gun manufacturers.  The Republicans said they would not repudiate an NRA endorsement or decline gun money.  We are still waiting for an answer from the Appointed Attorney General, who ducked the debate .

I am proud to stand up to the NRA, the gun manufacturers and anyone else who opposes sensible gun safety laws.

As Attorney General, I will also make sure that we take guns from the thousands of Californians who by law should not have a gun.  The Appointed Attorney General has failed to eliminate the huge backlog in the Armed Prohibited Persons Database which he administers.  He has been in office over a year and failed to take guns from thousands who are subject to domestic violence restraining orders, violent felonies, or have been adjudicated too mentally ill to have a gun.  He is simply not doing the job.

I look forward to making Calfornia safer as Attorney General, by strongly enforcing our gun safety laws and advocating for more sensible gun safety laws.

If you have not already done so, you can join our campaign here.  Forward this email to your friends, colleagues and neighbors and urge them to support me too.

Thanks for all you are doing to make California a better place.

March for Our Lives

*** Alex Padilla has been endorsed for CA Secretary of State by the CDP ***

Alex Padilla

Today we marched with our boys in Los Angeles’ March for Our Lives. Our children are our future, and we stand with them to demand the change we wish to see in the world.

We marched because we’ve had enough of this White House and the members of Congress who take their marching orders from the NRA.

We marched because when we drop our kids off at school, we want to know that they are going to be safe.

We marched because since the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, we’ve lost another 73 students to senseless gun violence.

We marched because “thoughts and prayers” aren’t enough.

Our young people led today and we were proud to follow. But they aren’t just marching. They’re registering and pre-registering to vote. And they’re making sure their classmates, neighbors and friends are too.

Join us in helping raise those pre-registration numbers to 100,000 new voters.  Please encourage everyone you know who is 16 years or older to pre-register or register to vote by going to

Thank you for standing with our young leaders,

Alex and Angela Padilla
