A Tennessee father begged police to remove guns from his suicidal son, but they refused saying it was his "sacred right" to keep them. The son then shot seven people, killing one. Tennessee is one of 35 states that hasn’t passed a Red Flag Law.

I decided to walk the walk with by volunteering in a local (small) leadership role. I'm not a mom and I haven't personally been affected by gun violence but I am a human being who cares about those who are and have.

Connecticut just passed three gun reform bills thanks to the work of these parents, students, and activists. They turned tragedy into triumph, like we did with universal background checks in Colorado, but none of us will stop there- not until our kids truly feel, and are, safe.

This is the second shooting in the city in a year that’s wounded 9 or more people. In June 2018, gunfire at the Art All Night festival wounded nearly 30 people; New Jersey volunteers were tabling that night, and many served as first-responders.
