We have a plan to end gun violence.

One at a time.

Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your town.

Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives.

Everytown defines a mass shooting as any incident in which four or more people are shot and killed, excluding the shooter. By this definition, the United States experiences an average of 19 mass shootings every year.

We deserve more than thoughts and prayers.

Our elected leaders owe us more than thoughts and prayers to prevent gun violence—they owe us action. Tell your senators to take action on background checks now.
