There have been 200 shootings of police this year

Day and night, police officers run toward danger to keep the rest of us safe, and this tragic milestone is a sobering reminder of the risks they face,” said John Feinblatt, Everytown’s president. “We have to reduce those risks, and data shows that we can ― by making it harder for criminals to get guns. It’s long past time to close the dangerous loophole in our laws that lets criminals buy guns with no background check and no questions asked.

Call the NRA’s bluff, enforce gun laws: Feds must throw the book at offenders

If Trump and Sessions are serious about upholding the law, they can adopt basic information-technology improvements, beef up prosecutors’ offices, and put teeth in the laws. Sessions’ home state of Alabama has the third worst gun homicide rate in the country, so steps like these should be at the top of his to-do list. The alternative? Falling for the old gun lobby canard that making America safer portends the extinction of our constitutional rights. Safety and the Second Amendment can and do live together. So call the gun lobby’s bluff, and get tough on crime.

Donald Trump won’t silence us

Now is the time to dig in and stand united against any attempt to dismantle life-saving gun laws. Together with Everytown for Gun Safety, Moms Demand Action has more than three million supporters and chapters in all 50 states. We will ensure the president-elect and the extremist leadership of the NRA do not undermine our safety. With their champion newly elected to the White House, the NRA will almost certainly push to quickly enact its reckless agenda in Washington and in our statehouses. Moms Demand Action volunteers will not shrink from that challenge – we will keep fighting until our country truly is safe from gun violence in everyday life.
