How did your Senators vote on common-sense gun laws?
After the deadliest mass shooting in American history, lawmakers voted to block efforts to pass common-sense gun laws — again.
But some lawmakers voted the right way, and took a brave stand for life-saving reforms. See how your senator voted, and then call their offices to tell them how you feel about their decision.
Tell Congress: Disarm hate. Take action NOW.
49 people were killed and over 50 injured during the worst mass shooting in U.S. history at a gay nightclub in Orlando. It was an attack on the LGBT community, an act of hate carried out with a gun. Hatred comes in many different forms. But there’s no reason why those filled with hate should have a gun.
Americans are dying. Now is the time to demand Congress take action to prevent gun violence in America.
Learn More About the Mother’s Dream Quilt Project
Every mother dreams that her child will grow up safe, healthy and happy. Unfortunately, too many American mothers see their dreams for their children shattered by gun violence.
Moms Demand Action has created The Mother’s Dream Quilt Project to symbolize the human toll of gun violence in America, as well as mothers’ shared commitment to making our country safer for our children.
We are creating a series of quilts from fabric donated by mothers across the country. Every block in every quilt uses the uniform quilting pattern known as “Mother’s Dream.” Each quilt also contains at least one block composed of meaningful fabric from a victim or survivor of gun violence. Blocks representing victims and survivors are surrounded by quilt blocks submitted by mothers who share in our collective sadness over too many lives shattered by gun violence.
The fully assembled quilts show how gun violence has become part of the fabric of America, but also show the strength, power and beauty of moms joining together.
Moms Launch Be SMART Campaign
Moms Demand Action launched the official website for our new Be SMART campaign, created to unify responsible adults to reduce the number of unintentional shootings that occur when children get ahold of unsecured firearms.
Watch the video starring Melissa Joan Hart, take our gun sense quiz, and sign up to learn more about how you can get involved in your community to prevent gun deaths and injuries that result from irresponsible gun storage.
These Shootings are #NotAnAccident
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America has released the #NotAnAccident Index and interactive map, a first-of-its-kind tracking tool for unintentional shootings by children, and launched Be SMART, a new public education campaign that asks asking gun owners and non-gun owners alike to come together to reduce the number of unintentional shootings, suicides, and homicides that occur when firearms are not stored responsibly and children or teens get ahold of a gun.
The U.S. has one of the highest reported rates of unintentional child gun deaths in the world. But these tragedies aren’t accidents — they’re preventable. Learn more about how and where these shootings happen:
