What do the youth think?


“In the same way that there are limitations on the first amendment  where you can’t cry fire in a crowded theater, you shouldn’t be able to get an AR15 or any weapon that can kill a number of people if you are a mentally unstable individual, if you are a person with a criminal background or somebody with a history of domestic violence.  I don’t get what’s so hard for these legislators to understand.  It’s a sensible gun control that both sides can support, but they suddenly can’t because they are bought by the NRA.”

David Hogg
senior at Marjory Stonemason Douglas High School,
MSNBC Feb 26, 2018



“Politicians who sit in their gilded House and Senate seats funded by the NRA telling us nothing could have ever been done to prevent this…


They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence…


They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun…


They say guns are just tools like knives and are as dangerous as cars…


They say that no laws could have been able to prevent the hundreds of senseless tragedies that have occurred…


That us kids don’t know what we are talking about, that we are too young to understand how the government works…


If you agree  register to vote,  contact your local congress people – give them a piece of your mind.”

What is a GVRO?

The Gun Violence Restraining Order (GVRO) is a law that allows family members, household members, and law enforcement to work with courts to temporarily remove guns and prevent the purchase of new guns by individuals who pose a significant risk of harm to themselves or others.

If you are in immediate danger, please contact local law enforcement or dial 911.

Why Do We Need a GVRO?

Easy access to guns is a significant risk factor for injury and death. Among the most high-profile incidents was the 2014 shooting in Isla Vista, CA, which helped to prompt the passage of the GVRO law: Friends and family had feared the shooter was dangerous before the shooting occurred, but law enforcement was unable to remove guns from his possession. A GVRO offers families and loved ones, household members, and law enforcement a judicial pathway for temporarily removing firearms and prohibiting future gun purchases for the duration of the order.

What Can I Do?

If you know someone, or come into contact with people who may be at risk of hurting themselves or others with a gun, you should know what options you have to speak for safety with a GVRO.  Click on the following link to the Speak For Safety web site for complete information.    https://speakforsafety.org
