Preventing Gun Violence

It is past time to take action to end the growing epidemic of gun violence in America and hold the NRA accountable. As a former Navy officer, Andrei knows that weapons of war do not belong in our neighborhoods. 

Andrei knows first hand the devastating effects of gun violence.Andrei grew up in a neighborhood deeply affected by gun violence. On January 6, 2011, Andrei was driving to Tucson to meet with Congresswoman Gabby Giffords who had recently persuaded him to run for Chair of the Arizona Democratic Party. Andrei’s wife, Stephanie and their two children were across the street at the time of the shooting. 

We must keep Americans safe from gun violence while honoring law-abiding gun owners’ Second Amendment rights. The gun homicide rate in the U.S. is 26 times higher than that of other countries but Donald Trump and David Schweikert are in the pocket of the NRA, blocking common sense gun control legislation.

David Schweikert is funded by the gun lobby and the NRA, having received over $75,000 throughout his tenure in Congress. Schweikert voted to block consideration of bills to close gun safety loopholes, and voted seventeen times against consideration of the “no fly, no buy” bill, which would prevent people on the terrorist watch list from being able to buy guns.

In Congress Andrei will work to:

  • Reinstate the bipartisan Congressional Assault Weapons Ban and banning Bump Stocks
  • Close the Charleston Loophole and prevent prohibited purchasers from accessing guns
  • Regulate the manufacturing and sale of ghost guns and 3-D printed guns
  • Pass and implement Red Flag laws (Extreme Risk laws) and to create a Federal Extreme Risk law system
  • Establish community-based programs to help break the cycle of gun violence
  • Mandate background checks for all firearm purchases and transfers
  • End the gun manufacturers’ immunity


Throughout Andrei’s career he has not just spoken out but led as a strong public advocate for gun violence prevention and gun safety legislation. 

As the Chair of the Arizona Democratic Party, Andrei led the charge against Governor Jan Brewer’s actions to allow guns in bars and in workplaces. Andrei joined with CEOs for Gun Safety to call on the U.S. Congress to take action on addressing gun violence. But he didn’t just use his voice, he took action. 

Andrei spent the past 10 years building a company to help people divest their dollars from gun manufacturers/the NRA. He helped millions of people divest billions of dollars that otherwise might be used by Big Banks to finance firearm companies.

Andrei and his company were targeted with an organized boycott by pro-gun groups because of his leadership. And when Walmart employees walked off the job in order to protest the company selling guns, Andrei and his company stepped in to pay them for their shifts.
