Learn the Facts

The gun lobby has been busy spreading fear and lies about gun violence and its cause. You’ll hear things like: things like “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” and “Gun laws don’t work. Criminals will get guns anyway.” Here’s how to respond to those pesky gun lobby talking points with facts »

Know Your State’s Gun Laws

Gun laws are different in every state. The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence has current and easy-to-understand information on all of the states gun laws.

Learn about Congress and the NRA

It’s been three years since the mass shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school. Since then, there have been over 150 school shootings across the country, and Congress has failed to pass federal law mandating background checks on ALL gun sales. Why? Maybe it’s because too many of them have been purchased by the gun lobby. Find out where your Congress members stand with the NRA »

Learn about the “Fix Gun Checks Act of 2015”

Find out if your representative supports the new House bill for Universal Background Checks on all gun sales, titled the “Fix Gun Checks Act of 2015”.

Take Action


Get involved in your state by joining a gun violence prevention organization, where you can attend local events and be involved in changing gun laws at the state level. In California, join US! Not in California? Check out State United’s list of state affiliated gun violence prevention organizations.


The first and most powerful thing you can do to end gun violence is to VOTE, and to encourage all your family and friends to do the same. Bad politicians are elected by good citizens who don’t show up to vote. Register to Vote!


Keep the conversation going: Talk to your friends, family and neighbors about guns. It has been a taboo subject for far too long and we need to normalize it. Find common solutions that appeal to both sides, like educating the public about gun safety, and enacting common sense laws like universal background checks that protect citizens while respecting the rights of lawful gun owners.
