Everyone has the right to be safe from gun violence

We the people have the right to be safe. The right to protection from gun violence.

We have a simple plan that will make Oregon communities safer: Lock guns up.

Lock guns up.

Responsible gun owners readily agree that safely storing firearms saves lives. But extremists in the gun lobby argue otherwise. Here in Oregon, we are ready to fight the NRA's extremist position.

We can't continue wringing our hands and then moving on every time an accidental shooting takes a life. We can't look the other way when stolen guns are used in violent crimes. We can't shrug our shoulders in defeat when children are murdered in schools.

It's past time we raise our standards. Safe gun storage will save lives.

We're asking the Oregon Legislature to pass regulations that require the safe storage and transfer of firearms, and call for law enforcement to be immediately contacted when a firearm is lost or stolen.

We're building a statewide movement to take on the NRA and demand responsible gun ownership. Join the movement on Facebook.
