It's been 19 years since Columbine, 5 years since Sandy Hook and two months since Parkland. Gun violence is now the third leading cause of death in children.
For years, ParentMap has covered the issue of gun responsibility from every possible angle. In the wake of the Parkland shooting, we are renewing our commitment to protecting children and families from gun violence. We join teen activists from across the country, Washington state's MomsRising and Alliance for Gun Responsibility and others in calling for common-sense gun reform and saying, once and for all: #NeverAgain.
Below find ParentMap's top resources for learning about this issue and opportunities for taking action. Find more on our gun safety page.
