Gun Violence Prevention Advocate,
I’m going to tell you a hard story – but it’s important for you to hear. Andrew’s story is every family member’s worst nightmare.
At 10 years old, Chris was playing at a friend's house when his friend pulled out his father's gun. It was sitting in an unlocked drawer. In a moment, the trigger was pulled, and the bullet went through Chris' upper back, severing his spinal cord.
This terrible accident could have been easily avoided with a simple lock. But, these all too common incidents have made firearms the leading cause of death for children in Pennsylvania. 1
We want to make 2024 the year for safer kids . Will you ask your legislator to stand up for Chris, your children, your grandchildren, and the kids on your block? [[link removed]]
Tell Your Rep: Support Safe Storage [[link removed]]
So many of you have told me how baffling and frustrating this is. How can we as a society not do everything in our power to keep our kids safe?
Here’s what you can do to help prevent the next tragedy : House Bill 1629 2 is a bill that would require the safe storage of firearms in homes where children may be present. The American Academy of Pediatrics backs this legislation and could save countless lives in our Commonwealth. We want a vote on it in 2024. And we need 50 more cosponsors to have a majority of the House on board.
Safe storage legislation has saved lives in more than 26 states already and has been proven to reduce shootings, firearm suicides, and unintentional shootings. 3
We will not stop until we get this across the finish line. There is strong momentum for this important legislation and together we will push to keep kids safe. Please contact your House Rep today and urge them to support H.B. 1629. [[link removed]]
