We are a group of parents and grandparents who demand for our children and grandchildren the "Rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."
Justice and domestic tranquility cannot be realized when children and adults must accept the fear of unregulated persons with unknown motives and capabilities freely carrying lethal weapons.
To limit, where possible, gun access by dangerous persons.
A group of parents and grandparents, highly experienced in:
- Medical and emergency room services
- Mental health
- Military, including Special Operations
- Law Enforcement, including training and international advisement
Realize that between 2002 and 2012 there were at least 28,000 persons who should NOT have had a gun.
Enforced personal responsibility of individuals and businesses.
We Can Accomplish this by:
- Universal Background checks
- Retention holsters on all publically carried handguns
- Marksmanship requirements for all weapons certifications
- Individual school district control over all on-campus weapons policies
- Harsh financial penalties for interference with commerce
We welcome and encourage participation by everyone who is committed to crafting a solution. We want involvement from all sides of the issue. If you wish to be involved please write to me at:
