“This legislation is a dangerous encroachment on individual state efforts to protect public safety, and it would effectively nullify duly enacted state laws and... hamper law enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence.”

“Whatever classroom I’m in I’m looking at how to exit in an emergency. That’s how we’re thinking now as teachers. What I could use to break a window, what I would use to barricade a door, how I would keep people quiet.”

‘How is this going to help us?’ a teacher asks as versions of this ritual are now stitched into the fabric of the American educational system

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler:
"At a time when young people are pushing society forward, government consistently finds itself two or three steps behind the public that it is supposed to serve."

Ceasefire Oregon

In today's State of the City address, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler highlighted the fact that the majority of Americans want strong, reasonable laws to reduce gun... violence.

Thank you, Mayor Wheeler, for your leadership and for putting the lives of Portland citizens ahead of gun profits.

From Mayor Wheeler's April 12 State of the City address:
"At a time when young people are pushing society forward, government consistently finds itself two or three steps behind the public that it is supposed to serve.

"For example, overwhelming majorities of Americans say they want common sense gun legislation. Yet Congress does nothing."

ASK: Is there an unlocked gun where my child plays or visits?

"Of the 20 of those cases where details were available on where the shooter got the gun, 17 were sourced at home, with a few also getting some weapons from relatives."

A striking detail stands out in nearly three decades of American mass school shootings: The killers mostly use guns owned by a family member, not purchased on their own.

"Polls show that nine out of 10 Americans favor basic steps like universal background checks before gun purchases, but the exceptions are the president and a majority in Congress."

A great read around defending the truth that more guns mean more violence.

When more Americans have died from guns just since 1970 than in all the wars in our history, it’s time to try a new approach.

Thanks for posting, LWV of Seminole CO.

Polls show that items on the March for Our Lives policy agenda are also supported by most Americans.

"We don’t need to repeal the Second Amendment. We just need to do everything we can to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them."

Even here in Tennessee’s gun country, keeping armed people out of schools is not too much to ask.

Responsible gun ownership means safely storing your firearm at all times. If gun owners do not and the gun is used by someone else, including a family member, to commit a crime or suicide, the gun owner must be held criminally liable.

A shocking number of gun-owning parents don't store their weapons safely.
