STATEMENT FROM SHANNON WATTS, FOUNDER OF MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA, PART OF EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY:
“Moms Demand Action applauds the House of Blues and Live Nation for their commitment to gun sense. Their no-weapons policy prioritizes the safety of all guests of the venue – artists and concertgoers alike. Americans should be able to go to a concert or dance in a nightclub without the fear of gun violence. The Live Nation policy puts the security and safety of its customers first.”
Moms Demand Action has a history of working with national businesses to prioritize gun safety. Past campaigns have garnered hundreds of thousands of supporters to successfully persuade corporate giants like Facebook, Starbucks, Target, Chipotle, Sonic, Chili’s, and Jack in the Box to publicly announce gun sense policies. More information on Moms Demand Action’s corporate campaigns is available here.
