One child or teen either dies or is injured by guns every 30 minutes. Gun violence saturates our children’s lives. More children and teens die from guns every three days than were murdered during the Newtown massacre. The number of children younger than 5 killed by guns in 2012 was higher than the number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty that same year. We can do better. We must do better.

Join us in our campaign to stand up, speak out, and organize with urgency and persistence until all legislators at the national, state and local levels protect children instead of guns. Every child’s life is sacred, and it is long past time that we pass common-sense gun safety regulations to give all children in America a safe start in life.
