What Will We Tell Our Kids?

We need to elect state politicians who will put the safety of children above their love of guns. Leverage your digital skills and channel your anger and sadness into change and help us do this.

WHY IT MATTERS

Gun violence is now the leading cause of death for children. There have been 213 mass shootings this year alone. There have been more mass shootings than there have been days in the year – an average of 1.5 mass shootings every day.  

State legislatures, not the federal government, are at the epicenter of major shifts in gun safety laws. In states where elected officials have taken action to pass gun safety laws, fewer people die by gun violence. After the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, the state legislature passed “red-flag” legislation which has been utilized nearly 6,000 times since the bill was passed. Following the Virginia Beach shooting in 2019, Virginia passed a number of gun safety laws, including requiring background checks, and now has the 14th strongest gun laws in the country.

And, as we see with Texas, there are still state politicians who fail to pass gun safety laws or even expand gun rights at the expense of lives. A year ago, Texas Gov. Abbott signed into law seven measures to expand gun rights, including one that allows people to legally carry handguns without licenses.

Joining Tech for Campaigns as a volunteer means you get to leverage your digital skills to help elect Democrats in battleground states to move gun violence prevention legislation forward.
