Campus shootings survivors and family members
of shooting victims have a message for Texas legislators:
The Texas legislature is considering gun-lobby backed legislation -- SB 11 and HB 937 -- that would force public universities to allow students, faculty, staff, and visitors to carry concealed handguns on campus, including in classrooms, dorms, on-campus fraternities, and at sporting events.
In response, we've taken out a full-page ad in the Austin American Statesman featuring a letter of opposition from fifty campus shooting survivors and family members of campus shootings victims. In addition, we are running digital ads and re-airing a TV ad opposing this dangerous legislation.
Everytown Newspaper Ad
The full page letter ad will appear in the Austin American Statesman on Thursday, May 21.
"Guns on Texas Campuses?"
It doesn't take a genius to know that guns don’t belong in college classrooms, football stadiums, or frat parties -- and 72% of Texans agree.
