Debating Gun Control

August 20, 2019

Will the Politics of Gun Control Shift This Time?

Watch John Rosenthal, gun owner and co-founder of Stop Handgun Violence, discuss background checks and more in a lively debate with Jim Braude at WGBH.


Meet Matt, a veteran Board member since 1995 and he tells us why he joined SHV:

“Without a focused, organized group of citizens offering a platform, it seems common sense was in danger of being lost.”

Join him at #SHV25 Anniversary Party!

Meet Melissa, a SHV board member who recognizes the epidemic of gun violence.

“Gun violence is a pervasive issue in communities across our country… and thoughts and prayers are no longer enough.”

Join her at #SHV25 Anniversary Party!
