No other developed country in the world has anywhere near the same rate of gun violence as America. The US has nearly six times the gun homicide rate as Canada, more than seven times as Sweden, and nearly 16 times as Germany.
Please join us to discuss what steps must be taken to allow the 2nd Amendment to stay in place and avoid the mass shootings, school shootings and everyday shootings that have become routine in our lives.
