We did it! On April 4, Governor Malloy signed SB 1160, “An Act Concerning Gun Violence Prevention and Public Safety.” Never before have we seen such energy and enthusiasm for a legislative campaign from our supporters – old and new, and especially through the addition of our March for Change program.
Please help us keep the momentum going, both in Connecticut and in support of strengthening gun laws at the national level. The gun lobby has hundreds of millions of dollars in its war chest. Advocates of sensible gun laws will not be heard if we lack the money for basic lobbying and public relations activities. If you support safer gun laws, please show us that you mean it: donate today.
Your donation will help us to:
- Reach out to the thousands of new activists who have found us since December 14 so that we can work together to defend this new legislation from repeal attempts
- Train activists in Connecticut and in other states on legislative and educational programs and strategies promoting gun violence prevention
- Expand our Red Flag campaign and the state’s Project Longevity effort, both of which focus on limiting gun crime and reducing illegal trafficking of guns
- Collaborate with the medical and public health communities to educate the public on the increased risk to residents of guns in the home
Connecticut has long been a national leader on gun violence prevention, ranked 4th for the strength of its gun laws. But we know that 4th was not good enough. There is still more to do to keep our children and communities safer from gun violence.
