Reducing death and injury from gun violence through common-sense means and methods.
Dedicated to changing the narrative of common-sense gun safety legislation.
Created by concerned citizens of Rhode Island in 2013, after the failure of the Rhode Island General Assembly to pass common sense gun legislation in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting.
