Protect our Kids
In 2020, for the first time ever, firearms were the leading cause of death for children.*
*According to the CDC.
Place the safety and well-being of kids and families above everything else.
For too long, politicians have prioritized the profits and campaign contributions of firearm manufacturers, the gun lobby and their allies over the lives of our children and families.
This year alone, the United States has endured more than 400 mass shootings, resulting in the deaths of over 1,000 children and teens ages 0-17. *
76% of those shootings that occurred in public involved an assault weapon and/or high-capacity magazine.**
