Two years ago, 7 people were killed and 25 were injured during a shooting rampage in Midland-Odessa, Texas. The gunman had failed a background check but was able to get a gun through a private sale. Today and always, we honor the victims with action.
We can save lives from community violence—if we invest in local solutions. Join our conversation with local leaders in PA to learn how community-based violence intervention strategies can break cycles of violence while restoring peace and safety.
Defaming Gabby Giffords is a new low—even for @LKeane and the NSSF. Not only does Gabby support responsible gun ownership, she IS a gun owner. Move over Wayne LaPierre—Larry Keane wants to be the new face of the gun lobby.
1,700 flowers—one for every life lost to gun violence last year in Pennsylvania. We’ve installed the Philadelphia Gun Violence Memorial at “the birthplace of America” to show the staggering depth of this crisis. We can save lives—but only if Congress gains the #CourageToAct.
NEW: We’re bringing the Gun Violence Memorial to Philadelphia. Join us August 23–26 at Independence Mall to commemorate the 1,700 Pennsylvanians who were killed by gun violence last year, and learn how you can take action to save lives. #CourageToAct https://t.co/hTY3ANHZuL
Survivors of gun violence are calling on @SenAngusKing to stand with them—not the gun industry—and confirm David Chipman as ATF Director. We must prioritize gun violence prevention, not corporate gun profits. #ConfirmChipman
YIKES: The GOP candidate for lt. governor in NJ told a local station that permitless concealed carry makes people safer... The data shows otherwise. New Jerseyans want a leader who will protect public safety, not promote dangerous gunfights.
Right-wing militias and domestic terrorists are stockpiling ghost guns without a trace. A new rule proposed by @POTUS would stop them. Tell the ATF to regulate untraceable ghost guns. Add a comment before Aug. 19: https://t.co/1lLianbvqP #GhostGunsAreRealGuns
Two years ago, nine people were shot and killed in Dayton, Ohio. Armed with a 100-round magazine on an AR-15, the shooter shot 26 people in 20 seconds. It shouldn’t be this way and it doesn’t have to. We must honor their memories by fighting for a safer future.
Two years ago today, 23 people were killed and 23 were injured at a Walmart in El Paso. It was the deadliest attack on Latinos in modern US history. Our hearts are with El Paso as we recommit to eradicating racism and the weak gun laws that turn it deadly. #DisarmHate
Serial numbers help law enforcement solve gun crimes, curb illegal gun trafficking, and prevent future shootings. But ghost guns don’t have serial numbers, so they can’t be traced. Ghost guns are a threat to our safety. Tell the ATF to #banghostguns: https://t.co/1lLiant6Pp
The January 6 attack made it clear: weak gun laws are a direct threat to our democracy. Whether it’s in a school, neighborhood, or on the Capitol steps, illegal firearms are a danger to all.
Illegal gun traffickers love ghost guns. Why? You can order a nearly-finished gun kit online—no questions asked—and finish it at home. Now you have a fully-functioning but untraceable ghost gun. Tell the ATF to #banghostguns. Submit a comment: https://t.co/1lLiant6Pp
Two years ago, a six-year-old, a 13-year-old, and a 25-year-old were killed at a garlic festival in Gilroy, CA. The gun was illegally trafficked from out of state. Thoughts and prayers won’t stop the next shooting. Stronger gun laws *nationwide* will.
Nine years ago, 12 people were killed and 70 were injured in a shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Our hearts are with the victims’ families and the survivors of this tragedy. We must always fight for a future free from gun violence. #HonorWithAction
