We're a nonpartisan group advocating for better prevention of gun violence
We will soon be adding links of news articles and relevant commentary to this page. Thank you for your patience as we get up this page developed.
I saw a meme on Google Plus that had the name of your organization on it. I was hoping you could tell me a little more about it.
It’s a collection of reasons apprehended criminals gave for shooting/murdering people.
There is a small disagreement about whether these are actual statements, or if they are simply someone else who has paraphrased what the killer said, in a shorter form.
It is titled:
A Few Of The Reasons People Shot People in November 2015.
I realize your likely very busy, but I’d appreciate it if you can take the time to let me know the answer.
We have created a number of those graphics to convey how senseless firearm violence is and how easily simple disagreements can escalate into life-threatening or fatal scenarios when a gun is added to the equation. The graphics are created in house by one of our members, and each line is a paraphrased summary of a news event written in the first person based on the news item. They are not direct quotes from the individuals who used a gun.
