For years, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has remained unchallenged in both strength and influence. Initially a hunting club, its founding members created the organization in 1871 to support hunting, marksmanship and to promote responsible gun use.
In recent years, they have been pursuing an agenda that could potentially be a risk to the public, with their lobbying of pro-gun legislations in Congress. As a result, the United States 33 gun related murders happen every day, 20 times higher than the average rate of other countries.
After a slew of horrendous and devastating shooting incidents in Connecticut, and other school shootings, a group of moms, gun violence survivors, government officials, and regular citizens have created a new group called Everytown for Gun Safety, an organization aimed at offsetting the power of the NRA.
They claim to be compromised of more than 1.5 million mayors, moms, cops, teachers, survivors, gun owners, and everyday Americans that have come together to make their own communities safer.
According to their website, “Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives.”
In Washington and Wisconsin, this group helped lead the fight to pass laws that will remove guns from the hands of domestic abusers. In Tennessee, members beat back a law that would have allowed open carrying of loaded guns in public parks, where kids play.
They’re also doing the real work of an effective movement: building the grassroots. The group’s Gun Sense Voter project aims to mobilize fully a million Americans to pledge to support candidates who will fight for common-sense gun laws.
