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.
Connecticut Against Gun Violence is working closely with our elected officials, preparing the most comprehensive package of gun violence prevention legislation ever proposed in the United States. Simply put, we are doing everything possible to prevent another Newtown massacre.
Your donation will help us:
- Enact the strongest assault weapons ban in the country. We plan to ban the possession and sale of these weapons with no grandfathering provision.
- Ban large capacity ammunition magazines of more than 7 rounds, with no grandfathering.
- Enact universal background checks on all sales and transfers, including long guns (previously excluded).
CT Against Gun Violence exists because gun violence exists. We are the only statewide group that works to help make our communities, our families, and our children safe from gun violence. While we are proud of the fact that CT has the fifth lowest rate of gun deaths in the nation, there is so much more to do.
