Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives. But something is changing. More than 1.5 million mayors, moms, cops, teachers, survivors, gun owners, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Together, we are fighting for the changes that we know will save lives.

Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your town. Learn more about the gun violence prevention movement here -

Inspiring post from Gabby Giffords in the NYT today -

"We will seize on consensus where it exists, on solutions big or small. We will fight for every inch, because that means saving lives. I’ve seen grit overcome paralysis. My resolution today is that Congress achieve the same. How? Step by step: Enhance enforcement by passing a law making gun trafficking a serious crime with stiff penalties. Make it illegal for all stalkers and all domestic abusers to buy guns. Extend mental health resources into schools and communities, so the dangerously mentally ill find it easier to receive treatment than to buy firearms. And even as we lay the groundwork for expanding background checks, pass strong incentives for states to ensure the background-check system contains the records of the most dangerous and violent among us."

Interesting idea:

An idea? Make firing/owning a gun in USA exactly like flying/owning a plane: 4-6 months training, written & practice exam, retest each 2 yrs

It sounds like Richmond is doing some interesting things to confront gun violence that could be a model for SF:

"Most neighborhood safety programs target individuals downstream from acts of violence, including victims and their families. But when ONS reviewed the homicides in Richmond, one thing became clear: About 15 young men were responsible for nearly all of them, but police couldn't prove it. So rather than working only with youth who were at-risk to become violent, ONS chose a more innovative strategy — to confront the young men who were perpetrating the violence and give them a chance for a better life."


You Won't Believe How These Men Are Ending Gun Violence in Their Deadly Hometown

Featured in a forthcoming documentary, "A Confused War," a few dedicated community leaders in Richmond, Calif., are working tirelessly to change their city's deadly reputation.

A vast majority of Americans support expanded gun control measures, but the NRA has again and again stopped every effort in Congress to pass common-sense legislation. So now it’s time to stop the NRA.

The NRA and its lobbyists have overpowered the will of the majority of Americans for too long.
