    Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Unveils Online Clearinghouse for
    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
    clearinghouse for information on Presidential candidates' positions on the
    gun violence prevention issue.

    "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
    Survey, which asks questions on key policy issues such as the federal
    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
    Background on key policy issues including the assault weapons ban,
    ballistic fingerprinting, closing the gun show loophole and federal
    firearm immunity legislation
    Presidential candidates' voting records and public statements on gun
    violence prevention
    "On Target '04 E-Newsletter", a regular election email update focusing on
    the gun issue in 2004 elections (coming soon)
