The Science Is Clear: Gun Control Saves Lives
By enacting simple laws that make guns safer and harder to get, we can prevent killings like the ones in Uvalde and Buffalo
A lot of great things in this moving piece. Two things really stood out:
1) guns kill more kids than active military or police each year in the US
2) we aren’t even allowed to research gun violence by law, thanks to the NRA
“We need to become the kind of country that looks at guns for what they are: weapons that kill. And treat them with the kind of respect that insists they be harder to get and safer to use.
And then we need to become the kind of country that says the lives of children are more valuable than the right to weapons that have killed them, time and again. Since Columbine. Since Sandy Hook. Since always.”Posted on 2022-05-29T19:47:35+0000
