BISMARCK, N.D. — The North Dakota chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, today released the following statement after the North Dakota Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee recommended passage three dangerous bills, which now head to the Senate floor for a vote:
“These bills don’t speak for the interests of responsible North Dakotans,” said Cheryl Biller, volunteer chapter leader with the North Dakota chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “There is no evidence that adding more guns to sensitive places, like our schools and sporting events, will do anything to stop gun violence in our state. I implore our lawmakers to see sense and reject this bill in the Senate. ”

Additionally, proven strategies for improving school safety can be found in a recent report from Everytown, the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association.
