October 17, 1995
Our first billboard in 1995 raised the attention of 16 children killed by guns everyday. For over two decades Stop Handgun Violence used the highly effective method of billboards to educate and raise public awareness about the epidemic of gun-related violence. Celebrate with us at our #SHV25 Anniversary party!
Last weekend, another Texas mass shooting killed seven people. Nine injured at an Alabama High School. Eight killed in Chicago. Gun violence is a health epidemic that results in nearly 40,000 deaths in one year and countless mass shootings! We believe the MA gun law reform model is a feasible solution toward less gun violence. But we know that it will take more, such as the March for Our Lives Peace Plan. It lays out a multi-pronged approach that we encourage all to support. We can’t wait to hear more at the March for Our Lives gun safety candidate forum on October 2nd!
