Another mass shooting

March 23, 2021

Last night ten individuals, including a local police officer, were murdered in Boulder, CO by an individual with an assault weapon. Until recently assault weapons were banned by the city of Boulder, but only a week ago, the NRA claimed victory when a court ruling stripped Boulder, CO of their local ban on AR-15 rifles and high capacity magazines.

We must take action to stop the NRA from making our communities less safe. Today the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on gun violence prevention. Tell our federally elected officials it’s time for gun reform in America. Take Action Today!

Violence against Asian Americans has been on the rise since COVID, but racism isn’t new. We stand with the AAPI community and agree that last week’s mass shooting in Atlanta was racially motivated. This hate combined with easy access to guns results in a deadly ending that we’ve witnessed time and again.

Congressman Warnock of Georgia asks for reasonable gun reform after mass shootings in Atlanta.
