SAFE STORAGE SAVES LIVES

Eight children are shot by guns every day in our country. 

According to Ceasefire’s partner group States United to Prevent Gun Violence, three in four primary students know where their parents keep their gun and one in three admit to handling it.

Guns need to be locked and stored safely. That’s why Colorado Ceasefire supports passage of a safe storage bill in the 2021 legislature.

ACTION ALERT

TELL CORY GARDNER TO PASS BACKGROUND CHECKS

Colorado’s U.S. Senator Cory  Gardner has accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars from the NRA.  That might be one reason he has not acted on the bill to require universal background checks on gun sales nationwide.  Let him know you want him to act.
