Torrens Receives Distinction from Moms Demand Action
Promises to bring common sense solutions to Florida’s ongoing issues with gun violence.
TAMPA, Fla – May 10, 2018 – Ryan Torrens, consumer lawyer and Democratic candidate for Florida Attorney General, announced that he has been given the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction. Moms Demand Action (MDA) is the latest grassroots group to support Torrens in his bid to succeed Attorney General Pam Bondi.
“I am very proud to receive this distinction,” said Torrens. “It is because of passionate groups like MDA, who continue to be a voice in our political dialogue, that we will see real change.” “These people want a voice to represent them in the attorney general’s office to protect their children and families…and Gen. Bondi has never been that voice.”
“I have been speaking with groups like MDA often as I have crossed the state campaigning in the past 11 months. Early on in this campaign season, I brought forth some day-1 working solutions to help curb gun violence in this state, as its next AG. I will stand with and protect the rights of our municipalities to design local firearms ordinances to protect our children, so long as they comply with the constitution.”
“As I stand with MDA, I have also stood with the Florida Education Association (FEA) in opposing bringing more guns into Florida classrooms. I strongly support the increased funding for Student Resource Officers & Deputies, who not only deter gun violence, but also often act as mentors to students.”
Torrens has been campaigning across the State of Florida, all the while fighting for his clients as a consumer protection lawyer. He says that he is running to put the Attorney General’s office back on the side of consumers again.
