Violence is much too large an issue for us to adequately address in this web site. Nonetheless, when looking at
violence there are a number of causal factors that must be examined. We offer our opinions here, which for obvious
reasons tend to focus on more effective gun control. If you agree with us we urge you to get involved right now.
We also recognize that you may disagree with us. We respect your beliefs, as we hope you do ours. We only ask that
you consider the effects of having so many dangerous weapons in the U.S. - namely the more than 30,000 gun related
deaths each year, not to mention three times that many gun injuries!
Our views on this hot button issue.
The first step to curbing violence is to get involved.

Closing the Gun Show Loophole at the National Level

Exposing Gun Supporters' Cliches
The same old cliches are trotted out by gun backers each time gun control measures
are proposed. Here is a list of them and how we respond to them--so that you'll be better prepared to answer them
when faced with this empty rhetoric!

An Anti-Violence Forum
We don't have the solution to violence just because we are victims of violence. We hope to provide a forum where you can submit your ideas to the problem, and read what others think. We've received lots of ideas
through this forum, but unfortunately won't be able to post more new ones until we have time. With the new baby
at home, that will be quite a while from now! Any volunteers?!?
