Gun Safety Actions

  • Petition – Oppose the “Safe Students Act”, which allows more guns in schools:
    • The National Rifle Association (NRA) has offered up their solution to gun violence: repeal the Gun Free Zone Act with the “Safe Students Act”. But there’s nothing safe about this legislation. In order to keep students safer, the NRA wants to increase the number of guns on school grounds.
    • http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/464/649/034/
    • Words you can cut and paste into the survey “personal comments” section:
    • This proposed legislation is misguided and dangerous!  Law enforcement officers undergo hours of training to determine when to use lethal force.  Suggesting that a posse of “good guys with guns” can determine who the “bad guys with guns” are is irresponsible.  More guns = more bullets = more death.  Let’s act to keep guns away from those who are not sufficiently mature or responsible, not allow gun proliferation that results in these individuals being shot and killed.
