14 whiteboards, 225 @MomsDemand signs, 60 wooden sticks, 38 xtra red t-shirts, 16 packages of markers. Yeah, I’m pretty excited about today’s . We’ll be demanding Senators pass . #studentsdemandaction

For decades now the NRA has successfully lobbied Congress to prevent any funding for the CDC to study let's perhaps “study” the following: @michaelfmoore 1. Nearly all gun murders are committed by one gender. Let’s study why that is. 2. The vast majority of guns are owned by white people. Why is that? Most of these white people live in nearly all-white suburban and rural areas which have little or no crime. Why, really, do they need all those guns? 3. Why are most of these school shootings and other mass shootings committed by young white frightened males? 4. So many frightened, scared men say they need a gun. Yet, women — who have a REAL reason to be afraid in this society — carry hardly ANY of the 300 million+ guns in this country. Let’s study that. 5. Why are women so often the victims of this violence? Let’s study how millions of boys are raised and socialized in this culture to be man-boys who fear & despise women. And why women end up dead because of this ugly misogyny. 6. Perhaps it simply comes down to this: In the US, women hold no real political, economic or social power. 75% of Congress are men. A woman wins the presidency, but a slave-era law prohibits her from taking office. Just 6% of the CEOs of the Fortune 500 companies are women. None of the major religions are run by women. Wall Street is not run by women. We still haven’t passed the Equal Rights Amendment for women. Wouldn’t a scientific study by the CDC show that if Congress was majority female (which might give us better schools, universal health care, day care and senior care), and if women were paid the same as men (a strong wage so all could have a decent life), wouldn’t this then be the ultimate result: Far less of us will die on any given day from an angry spray of random bullets? #studentsdemandaction 

@shannonrwatts • • • • • Posted @withrepost@curiouswithjvn All too familiar today in the United States is the occurrence of gun violence.  Back in 2016 @jvn was joined by @everytown to discuss gun safety, the second amendment, what exactly the NRA is, and what we can do to help promote gun safety. Today- with the recent tragedies around the country, Shannon Watts founder of @momsdemand puts out a call to action to listeners and all who can make a difference to join a rally this weekend to call on our senators to act. For more information on how to help and to listen to the episode, please visit the link in bio.  Text RALLY to 644-33 and special thanks to @everytown @momsdemand @shannonrwatts for the update. Shannon Watts is a mother of five who, prior to founding Mom’s Demand Action, was a stay-at-home mom and former communications executive. The day after the Sandy Hook tragedy, Shannon started a Facebook group with the message that all Americans can and should do more to reduce gun violence.  The online conversation turned into a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that protect people form gun violence. #studentsdemandaction  @everytown @fianational @giffordscourage @livefreeusa @marchforourlives @momsdemand
