Dear GVP Friends, 

Another high-profile mass shooting in Maryland this week, the 155th this year, reminds us of the importance of our work.  Background checks on all gun sales, extreme risk protective orders (ERPOs) and an assault weapons ban would go a long way towards cutting down on these tragedies, as well as the daily gun-death toll, now hovering at 102.  In San Diego we continue to educate, work with our legislators and register new voters.  Together we can bring about change. 

 
Our young people lead the way


 
Check out Team Enough and encourage anyone 13-30 to sign up.  The leaders of this youthful team have developed a report card to rate our Congress Members on their co-sponsorship of the bills calling for background checks, an assault weapons ban and ERPOs.  Thanks to their efforts, co-sponsorship on all these bills has increased. 
You can see your Representatives' report cards here.
 If they passed, please send them a quick thank you tweet. 
 
March for Our Lives - Road to Change is making its way across the country.  They will be in Orange County July 20th.  Sign up here to greet them.  Their other California stops will also be in LA, Palmdale and Oakland.  
 
This is the generation that will end gun violence

Call to Action

Our partner, Sandy Hook Promise, has brought this to our attention.  Please sign their petition.  You can also read more about this horrific video game here

 

We've successfully pulled the Active Shooter, school shooting game from Indiegogo, Bluehost and now PayPal – but the video game creators won't give up. They're trying to make money off the game again using a new payment platform, Stripe, and they changed the name to "Standoff" to hide its disgusting history.

And they aren't stopping there: They're taking feature requests from players who want to play the game as the shooters who murdered children and educators at Sandy Hook, Columbine and Marjory Stoneman Douglas.

Glorifying the brutal murder of our loved ones to make money is depraved. We've stopped them before, and we can stop them again, but only if supporters like you take action now. Stripe prohibits any business that promotes or celebrates violence, so please sign our petition demanding it immediately ban the game creators' account and withhold their funds:

Sign our petition to demand Stripe ban the school shooting video game, withhold the creators' funds and prevent them from making money by glorifying the shooting and shooter that stole our loved ones.
 

 
 
Representative David Cicilline (RI) introduced a resolution designating June 21st National ASK  (Asking Saves Kids) Day.  The resolution reminds parents to always ask about the presence of guns in the homes where their children play.  Watch the Congressman's presentation. 
 
 Dear Abbey picked up the call and sent out this reminder to parents!  

 
 
As always, thank you for your support.  

Carol, Wendy and the Leadership Team
