Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense In America Stands With Colorado State Senators Morse and Giron, Colorado Leaders Who Stand for Our Children’s Safety
After the mass shooting tragedies in Newtown and Aurora, legislators boldly passed landmark gun safety legislation, including background checks and magazine capacity limits, in order to protect the children and communities of Colorado.
Two of the leaders of that effort – state Senators John Morse and Angela Giron – are now the targets of the first-ever recall elections in Colorado. The recall elections, which are costing taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars, are being lead by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other gun lobby organizations.
“The NRA was unwilling to wait until the next election to try and remove these two legislators from office as punishment for supporting common-sense gun reform legislation, despite Sen. Morse’s plans to retire after this term,” said Aimee Tavares, National Field Director of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “Colorado members of Moms Demand Action are supporting these courageous leaders, and we want all American lawmakers know that moms will always stand with the people who stand for the safety of our families.”
Moms Demand Action believes the outcome of these recall elections will impact not just Colorado, but every state in the country.
“If the NRA succeeds in Colorado with this recall, legislators everywhere will give pause before voting for common-sense gun laws. Ultimately, it will be all American families who pay the price with their safety if the NRA wins these elections,” said Tavares.
About Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America:
Much like Mothers Against Drunk Driving was created to change laws regarding
drunk driving, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (www.momsdemandaction.org)
was created to build support for commonsense gun reforms.
The nonpartisan grassroots movement educates, motivates
and mobilizes moms and families to take action for stronger gun laws and
policies that save lives. In just eight months, the organization has more than
100,000 members with chapters in every state across the country.
Moms Demand Action supports the 2nd Amendment, but we believe common-sense solutions can help decrease the escalating epidemic of gun violence that kills an American child every 3 hours and 15 minutes. Whether the gun violence happens in urban Chicago, suburban Virginia, or rural Texas, we must act now on new and stronger gun laws and policies to protect our children.
Moms Demand Action envisions a country where all children and families are safe from gun violence. Our nonpartisan grassroots movement is made up of more than 100,000 members and a chapter in every state across the country. We are educating, motivating, and mobilizing moms and families to take action that will result in stronger laws and policies to save lives. We support these solutions to help address gun violence in the United States:
- Require background checks for all gun and ammunition purchases;
- Ban assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds;
- Track the sale of large quantities of ammunition, and ban online sales;
- Establish product safety oversight of guns and ammunition, and require child-safe gun technology;
- Support policies at companies and public institutions that promote gun safety;
- Counter the gun industry’s efforts to weaken gun laws at the state level.
We are facing a public health crisis: Nearly eight American children are shot and killed every day. Anything else responsible for this many deaths would be immediately investigated and regulated. Not a single federal law has been passed in decades to prevent gun violence – not after Columbine and not after Newtown.
For too long, those who stand to profit from easy access to guns have controlled the conversation about gun violence. American families are being destroyed and mothers have had enough; we will no longer stand by and let Congress, companies and colleges turn their back on sensible gun laws and policies. We are organizing to effectively lobby and apply pressure that will result in stronger, sensible gun laws and policies that will protect our children and families. The momentum is with us, and we are in this for the long haul.
American mothers are an important voice that, when harnessed, will wield significant change. We may be accidental activists, but we are the wave of change in America.
