Friday marks six years since the mass shooting at Sandy Hook School, where 20 students and six educators were shot and killed in a tragedy that felt unimaginable for the quiet town. In the years since then, Americans have continued to experience the heartache that gun violence causes, from a high school in Parkland, Florida, to a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, to countless tragedies that never make headlines.
But signs of progress are everywhere and 2018 will go down as a turning point in the fight for gun safety, when millions of Americans channeled their anger into action by marching in the streets, lobbying in statehouses and voting at the ballot box. And, they’re winning.
Americans have realized that gun safety isn’t a right-or-left issue – it’s a life-or-death issue.
