Inspiring Gun Safety
The tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut in December 2012 refocused the public’s attention on the epidemic of American gun violence wreaking havoc on American families and communities across the country daily. MomsRising’s Gun Safety Campaign educates and engages our members and the general public about gun violence and helps build the political will to enact common-sense solutions to this terrible problem, including:
- Criminal background checks for all gun purchases, including at gun shows and on the Internet.
- A ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
- A federal anti-gun-trafficking statute with real penalties to crack down on straw purchases.
In April 2013, MomsRising helped bring about the first meaningful gun policy reform vote in the Senate in almost 30 years. Although this vote narrowly missed passage, we continue to lead the mom charge demanding action to reduce gun violence, especially the strengthening of background checks on all gun sales.
MomsRising amplifies the voices of moms and family members in the national debate on smart gun legislation, virtually through broadcast and personal media channels, and in real life through meetings and other face-to-face interactions with lawmakers, stakeholders and influencers. We bring mothers and family members directly to Capitol Hill, the White House, local district offices and even the NRA to share their experiences, thoughts and hopes about gun violence. MomsRising also holds accountable corporations that promote irresponsible gun culture, such as LivingSocial, which offers entertainment packages that combine alcohol with recreational shooting.
