We have accepted the unacceptable for too long. Parents, teachers and kids should not have to worry that their school will be the site of the next school shooting. We need a Gun Safety President. Thanks to the efforts of Gabby Giffords and the Giffords Organization, we will no longer tolerate the intolerable.
As today marks the first full week of September with American children heading back to school, Giffords’ new #GunSafetyPresident series starts with a first video—top Democratic candidate candidates speaking out about the epidemic of gun violence and school shootings that have become all too commonplace in American life. During the 2017–2018 school year, 4.1 million students endured at least one lockdown.
Students across America are scared that their school could be the site of the next mass shooting. Parents are afraid to put their kids on the school bus. Instead of making lesson plans, teachers are making active shooter plans. It shouldn’t be this way.
The candidates we spoke with understand that protecting our kids is one of the most urgent priorities our next president will face and are committed to fighting for a safer future.
