Gun violence in America has followed a predictable pattern: A tragic shooting captures the nation’s attention. The country mourns. Then the gun lobby gets in the way, and ultimately our leaders do nothing.
With our high rates of gun suicide and homicide, instances of domestic violence that turn deadly, and mass shootings in our schools, churches, and theaters, Americans are tired of this inaction. Millions are demanding our elected officials take action now to advance common-sense gun safety laws.
