All Communities Deserve Freedom From Gun Violence
Sign the petition to urge our elected officials to make a commitment to ending gun violence. Working together, we can make change.
Just a few months ago, two children were shot to death while playing outside near their homes in Minneapolis. The day after Christmas, a three-year-old boy died after a stray bullet came through the wall of his home. [See www.protectmn.org for recent events, including Trayvon Martin killing.]
In Minnesota, gun violence kills seven people per week and injures 14. Violence at this level devastates our families and communities.
We all have the right to live free from gun violence. Gun deaths can be prevented.
We urge our elected officials to make a commitment to strong laws that disrupt gun trafficking and keep guns out of the wrong hands.
