Petition for common sense gun safety reform in Tennessee

We are devastated by the news of another school shooting in Nashville and grieve the loss of Evelyn Dieckhaus, 9; Mike Hill, 61; William Kinney, 9; Katherine Koonce, 60; Cynthia Peak, 61; and Hallie Scruggs, 9.

Tennessee children and families are worthy of leaders who will keep them safe and stop the next school shooting before it happens.

We deserve elected leaders who value the lives of our children and families and who will protect their freedom to safely grow up, graduate, and live a good life.

Our children and families are worth more than the distractions spread by politicians in power who point the blame at some group that is different while they block the common sense gun safety measures that the vast majority of us and law enforcement want.

They hope that if we fear each other, we will look the other way while they do nothing and continue to allow this growing harm and threat to our communities.

We are coming together to send the message we want elected leaders who know our children’s worth and are willing to prove it by passing legislation to save their lives.

Allowing anyone to get a gun and massacre our kids is a choice we don't need to keep making.

We are demanding what our families need so that every child in every corner of our state has the freedom to thrive and pursue their dreams, no exceptions.

Signing the petition will opt you in to learning more about - and from - local nonprofit organizations fighting for common-sense gun safety reforms and the health, safety, and wellbeing of all Tennesseans.
