Debunking Gun Myths at the Dinner Table
One important way we can help change America’s deadly gun culture is by dispelling the myths the gun lobby spreads to support their dangerous “guns for anyone, any time, any place” agenda. Read few of those myths and some facts you can use when having conversations with others about guns, gun violence and gun safety laws in America.
Educators Demand Action
We are aggressively fighting the gun lobby’s agenda to force guns into American schools and campus. We need educators to join us, and raise their voices to oppose the proliferation of guns in American educational spaces. If you are a teacher, administrator, professor, any other education professional, sign on today to get involved in helping us keep schools and campuses safe.
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.
Be SMART for Kids
Children and unsecured guns are a dangerous, and all too often deadly, mix. Responsible adults–both gun owners and non-gun owners alike–can help prevent tragedies that result when kids get ahold of unsecured guns. The Be SMART program provides five simple steps that we can all take to prevent children from accessing guns.
Mother’s Dream Quilt Project
Every mother dreams of a happy future for her children. Unfortunately, too many American mothers see that dream shattered by gun violence—which has become part of the very fabric of our country. Moms Demand Action has created The Mother’s Dream Quilt Project to symbolize the human toll of gun violence in America, and mothers’ shared dream of a country where all our children will be safe.
