Tim Sheridan, the leading Democratic candidate for Congress in California’s 42nd Congressional District, said today that he supports President Obama’s executive actions regarding guns and gun safety.
“The President’s action today is a measured and appropriate response to the gun violence that has plagued our nation,” Sheridan said.
“Something needed to be done and Congress’s failure to act was unconscionable. The great majority of the American people support expanded background checks and the other measures that the President has taken. We’ll be a safer nation because of it,” Sheridan added.
California’s 42nd Congressional District, a geographical area shaped like the letter “X,” runs along the I-15 corridor from Eastvale, southeast to Temecula, and northeast along the I-215 and CA 79 corridors to Beaumont. It also includes the communities of Corona, Norco, Lake Elsinore, Wildomar, Murrieta, Menifee, Sun City, Winchester, Homeland and Nuevo. Mr. Sheridan lives in Lake Elsinore and was the 2014 Democratic nominee for Congress in the 42nd District.
