Learning requires a safe environment and guns pose a grave threat to students and teachers.
The recent tragedies in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton are a gut-wrenching reminder of Congress’ inaction on gun violence. It is long past time to take action to stop school shootings and mass shootings in the United States. The Senate has a bill ready that can serve as a crucial first step in keeping schools and communities safe from gun violence.
Write your senators today. Tell them to return to Washington D.C and immediately take up S. 42 to expand background checks for gun purchases and S. 66 to ban assault weapons.
