For Immediate Release | February 15, 2018
Thoughts and prayers are just not enough. We all grieve for the victims, the families, the kids, and the community forever traumatized. But it’s time to act. Stop offering fake solutions by addressing anything but guns. Eighteen school shootings just in the first six weeks of 2018. Four hundred people slaughtered in school shootings since Sandy Hook.
We need universal background checks, so the mentally ill can’t buy a military assault rifle. It’s common sense to ban bump stocks, high capacity ammo magazines, and silencers. There’s overwhelming public support, including among responsible gun owners. The political cowardice is an outrage.
