NAA continues to push for passing common sense gun safety legislation at the local, state and federal levels. Congress has shamefully failed to take action after the Sandy Hook tragedy, however numerous state legislatures passed gun safety laws and in Washington, California and Nevada voters passed various sensible gun safety measures via ballot initiatives.
The gun lobby has worked to block legislation at all levels, however, it has seen numerous losses at the state level. Due to recent election outcome, the gun lobby has been emboldened to loosen state and federal gun safety laws.
Newtown Action Alliance continues to work tirelessly to build a strong alliance to block the gun lobby efforts to arm anyone everywhere. Like many communities, Newtown knows firsthand that more guns do not make our communities safer.
