Resources

Advocacy: I have some guidelines as to how to contact lawmakers. If you’ve never called the office of your State Senator or Representative, this may make it a little easier. The process is quick and very effective.

Research: 👍Giffords Law Center
An excellent resource for gun legislation, current gun laws and statistics.

Company Boycotts: 👍Drain the NRA
Spreedsheets of companies supporting and opposing the gun industry. We are a movement that boycotts the gun industry, its corporate partners and targets the politicians it pays off!

Legislator Voting Reports: 👍LEAP-Forward.org
Spreadsheets of legislators and their voting records on gun bills. All states and Congress are covered. LEAP-Forward.org seeks to find and promote candidates for office who understand that gun violence is a political problem that must be solved politically, and who know that when it comes to gun safety, voters deserve a clearly stated position.
