We are the future of America and we demand a future free from gun violence. We will no longer remain silent as a preventable epidemic devastates our towns, our homes and our schools.
We call on our nation's leaders to develop a comprehensive plan to end the crisis of gun violence in our nation. This plan must include:
1. A national campaign to educate all Americans, both gun owners and non-gun owners, about the threat of gun violence and how it can be prevented.
2. Common sense gun violence legislation which is already supported by the majority of Americans, including the majority of gun owners, such as:
Child access prevention laws to hold gun owners responsible for what happens with their guns and prevent children and others from having unauthorized access.
Elimination of assault weapons and other weapons of war.
Nationwide laws to eliminate illegal gun trafficking and keep guns out of the hands of criminals.
Licensing and registration of guns, like automobiles.
We demand solutions, not political debate, and we demand those solutions now.
