Texas Gun Sense began out of a sense of frustration with escalating gun violence in Texas and in the nation. Like many of our fellow citizens, we were devastated with what happened at Virginia Tech, Aurora, and Newtown.
The shootings of innocent people are becoming far too common, and we are dismayed by the lack of response from our government.
Texas Gun Sense advocates for common-sense, evidence-based policies to reduce gun injuries and deaths.
We use "gun sense" because we recognize citizens' right to own guns, but also believe our laws could be strengthened to include more sensible policies that would protect the general public from avoidable accidents and injuries from guns.
What We Do
Increase public awareness – We give the public resources and information about gun violence and prevention and about federal, state, and local gun policy.
Bring people together – We facilitate the Texas Coalition to Reduce Gun Violence, bringing stakeholders together to explore policy solutions to gun violence.
Advance public policy– We advocate for sensible gun law reforms and are a reliable source of information to state and local policymakers.
Serve as a media resource – We supply the press with information on gun violence and policy issues that impact Texas. To find out more, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
