I’m really pleased to see our campaign receive recognition from Moms Demand Action, who know that I too stand with them in working towards gun violence prevention through more common sense gun safety in our society.
Gun violence prevention is about:
• Reducing and preventing gun violence is a public safety issue, not a political one. Over 35,000 Americans are killed every year by gun violence and thousands more are injured.
• Responsible gun owners know that supporting the Second Amendment goes hand in hand with common-sense solutions to reduce gun violence.
• Doing more to keep guns out of the hands of felons, domestic abusers and people with dangerous histories, knowing that respecting rights and protecting people go hand-in-hand.
• Common-sense public safety measures make our communities safer and save lives.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for new and stronger solutions to lax gun laws and loopholes. 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.
