Here's How:

Holding elected officials accountable, making this the safer nation we all want

Of the 33,000 people who die from gun violence in this country each year, how many could be saved?

  • Access to guns increases deaths by suicide

    Americans In Crisis

    Every day in America, 93 people die from gun violence. Fifty-eight of those deaths, or nearly two-thirds, are suicides with guns.

     

  • Shooting Costs - GOP Healthcare plan would shift costs to taxpayers and gun violence victims

    Brady Healthcare Report

    Surviving a gunshot wound should not leave you uninsured or bankrupt
