Protect Your Family from Gun Violence

The epidemic of gun violence these days is frightening. What can individuals do about it? The student survivors of the Parkland school massacre have asked each of us to be involved in ending gun violence and brought renewed pressure on our legislators to pass gun laws to help end the senseless shootings of children and adults.

As a group, we educate ourselves about the causes of and solutions to gun violence. We meet regularly to  discuss current issues in the news and to take action. Recent meetings investigated: 3D Printed Guns, The Del Mar Gun Show and The NRA’s Push to Recruit Women and Families. We use the League’s national policy on this issue as a stepping off point for us to help end this life and death problem that is invading all of our lives.
