Candidates' Views on Gun Violence Prevention

Washington, DC - The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) today (July
10th) unveiled www.CandidatesOnGuns.org, the only website designed as a

"This website will serve as a clearinghouse for voters, the media, and
advocates who want to know where candidates stand on the critical issue of
gun violence prevention," said Joshua Horwitz, Executive Director of the
Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

One of the features of the website is CSGV's 2004 Presidential Candidate

assault weapons ban and firearm industry immunity legislation. Several of
the candidates have completed the survey, and CSGV will post candidate
answers as they are received.

In addition to the questionnaire responses, www.CandidatesOnGuns.org also
features:Polling on the gun safety issue including views of gun owners
and NRA supporters across the country and in key primary states

ballistic fingerprinting, closing the gun show loophole and federal
firearm immunity legislation
