The need for the reduction of gun violence is generally accepted by all parties, gun owners and non-gun owners alike. Like many other major issues, the goal will only come about when the public demands it.
We are GunSenseUs. As our name implies, we are focused on identifying areas of consensus among gun owners and non-owners on how we can increase gun safety for all. We provide people with differing views and experiences an opportunity to share their thoughts in an atmosphere of respect, empathy and compassion.
Coming together to share thoughts and acknowledge consensus creates a shared path to achieve change. We educate and engage residents about the sources of gun violence, ways to enhance gun safety, and policies and approaches that have been shown to work.
Based on our commitment to consensus, we are three areas of focus, which we call “Your Best B.E.T. For Gun Safety”. 1) Background checks, 2) Extreme risk orders, red flag initiatives, and 3) Training/safety programs.
Raising awareness, conducting education and fostering change costs money. You can help by contributing what you can to this extremely worthwhile endeavor.
Our specific needs include:
1) Equipping and growing the organization’s engagement and education efforts
2) Developing and implementing community programs designed to reduce gun injury and death
You have a right to bear arms and your children have a right to live. These are not incompatible goals.
Helps us move forward, together.
