We thank Judge Lasnik for issuing this important order. As he noted, these guns will result in irreparable harm in our streets, schools, places of business, and our homes.

Newtown Action Alliance Opposes Use of Federal Funds to Arm Teachers Implores Donald Trump and Congress to Pass Sensible Gun Laws Instead

The majority of teachers across the nation oppose guns in schools and we oppose our tax dollars being spent to arm teachers for gun industry profits. In an effort to boost gun sales, the gun lobby has been pushing the arms race between those who wish to do harm and those who wish to protect. With nearly 140,000 public schools, private schools, and post-secondary institutions in America, the gun industry would profit immensely from arming teachers in our nation.

Open Letter to President Donald Trump To Stop 3-D Plastic Guns

We implore you to immediately stop Attorney General Jeff Sessions, U.S. Department of Justice, Secretary Pompeo, and the U.S. State Department from authorizing Defense Distributed to release downloadable files for 3-D guns. These files would allow anyone around the globe to make do-it-yourself, untraceable 3-D guns by circumventing any existing state and federal gun regulations, resulting in serious public safety and national security concerns.

In Newtown, Connecticut, One Man’s Journey Out of America’s Gun Culture

Eric Milgram doesn’t exactly have the typical résumé for a gun-control activist. Like millions of Americans, he grew up around firearms. He received his first shotgun at the age of 13. As a young man, he owned eight guns and was a member of the National Rifle Association. After moving to Newtown, Conn., in 2010, he set up a target behind his house and tried to teach his children to shoot. He was even contemplating buying an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

The Fearless, Outraged Young Protesters at the March for Our Lives

Until recently, advocates for gun control hadn’t realized what their movement was missing: fearless, outraged teen-agers. On Saturday morning, in Washington, D.C., students and parents gathered to protest the lenient gun laws that allow for endless mass shootings in America. Many had orange price tags dangling from their wrists: $1.05, the amount the National Rifle Association donated to the Republican senator Marco Rubio, divided by the number of students in Florida, the state he represents. A massive sound system broadcast pop songs: Kesha’s “Tik Tok,” Britney Spears’s “Toxic,” the Killers’ “Mr. Brightside.” The mood was celebratory, but determined.
