VIDEO: Gil Cisneros (CA-39) Releases New TV Advertisement Addressing Gun Violence

Follows Recognition From Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America

Fullerton, Calif. – Today, after joining Fmr. Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and students from across the country at the March for Our Lives in Washington D.C. this past weekend, Fmr. Lieutenant Commander Gil Cisneros who is running for Congress in California’s 39th Congressional District, released a new television advertisement highlighting Cisneros’s advocacy and efforts to prevent gun violence by standing up to the NRA.
The release comes on the heels of Cisneros receiving the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate Distinction. Since its inception after the tragedy at Sandy Hook School, Moms Demand Action has established a chapter in every state of the country and, along with Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the Everytown Survivor Network, is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country with more than four million supporters.

The Script Of The Ad Reads As Follows:


“My life’s pursuit has been to help kids achieve their dreams. 

And to see those dreams shattered by gun violence would be unbearable.

These weapons of war have no place in our neighborhoods. 

And politicians scared of the NRA have no place in Congress. 

I’ll stand up to the NRA to protect our children, to fight for universal background checks and to ban assault weapons.

Because it’s time for real leaders who put people first.”


Gil Cisneros is a former U.S. Naval Officer and was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal, Navy Achievement Medal (2), the National Defense Medal, and the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal for his exemplary service to his country. Gil is Advocate and co-founder of The Gilbert & Jacki Cisneros Foundation, an organization committed to improving the level of Hispanic education in the country.

Gil and Jacki partnered with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund and the city of Pico Rivera, California to create Generation First Degree Pico Rivera, with the goal of putting a college degree in every Hispanic household in the city. Gil’s commitment to education, led him to be appointed to former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher Initiative’s advisory board and President Obama’s Advisory Committee on the Arts for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
California’s 39th Congressional District, split between Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties, will be one of the most competitive districts in California.
