The NRA is pulling the strings

Republicans are hoping you're distracted by everything else they're doing because this is ridiculous: their recently-announced commission on making schools safer will not look at gun violence.

It's absurd and, frankly, a sham, to not discuss the role guns play in school safety.

Sign the petition. Tell Education Secretary Betsy DeVos that there shouldn't be a school safety discussion without addressing gun violence.

Far too many families have had their lives torn apart by gun violence. Just yesterday there was another mass shooting, thankfully not in a school this time, and more families are grieving. But Republicans won't even bother having a conversation about what easy access to lethal firearms means for school safety?

I can see the NRA pulling the strings from over here.

Let's make our voices heard on this critical issue.

Sign the petition and tell Betsy DeVos: no school safety discussions without addressing gun violence.
