We’ve Only Just Begun to Fight

10703552_664307330353857_4874967965569852608_nIn races across the country yesterday, Americans supported gun sense policies and candidates in states like Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Oregon, and Washington.

Thanks to YOU, in many races where gun laws were front and center, democracy worked and commonsense prevailed. But we’re only just beginning. Help us go toe-to-toe with the gun lobby when state legislative sessions start in January 2015.

Tell Kroger Moms want #GroceriesNotGuns

Moms head to the grocery store on a weekly, sometimes daily basis — often with kids in tow. We don’t expect to face armed strangers when we shop with our families. That’s why we’re asking Kroger, the country’s largest grocery retailer, to prohibit open carry at its supermarkets. In recent years, man shootings and gun rallies have taken place at Kroger brand stores, which include Fred Meyer, Ralph’s, Smiths, Food4Less, Harris Teeter, and others. The company policies says that its core values include creating a “safe and secure workplace and shopping environment.” It’s time for Kroger to live up to that promise. Tell Kroger to end open carry at its supermarkets:

imageExactly one month ago today, Moms Demand Action launched a campaign asking Target to stop allowing open carry around our children and families. This morning, Target announced that it heard our concerns and will no longer allow firearms inside stores. This huge change made by one of our country’s largest and leading retailers is proof that when women and mothers collectively use our voices and votes, we will change the culture of gun violence in America.


Preventing Child Access to Guns

imageChildren and unsecured guns are a lethal combination. Again and again, we are horrified by the story of another child killed or injured with a negligently stored gun. According to a newly released report by Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety, at least 100 children were killed in unintentional shootings between December 2012 and December 2013—and the vast majority of these tragedies could have been prevented if the guns were stored responsibly. Moms Demand Action will be working on a variety of initiatives throughout the year to reduce the number of unintentional shootings and to keep our kids safe.

Get the facts on unintentional shootings and find out what you can do to spread the word about responsible storage.
