The LWVNC is working in partnership with two statewide groups, North Carolinians Against Gun Violence and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, to reduce gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence has far-reaching effects in North Carolina, impacting all residents—young and old; rural and urban; black, white, and brown; rich, poor, and in between.

Despite growing popular support, legislative change has been thwarted by the gun lobby and by elected leaders who refuse to prioritize sensible legislation that will save lives.

We support the Second Amendment and work to keep guns away from criminals and those who are a danger to themselves and others.  Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for these dangerous people to get guns, complicating the work of law enforcement and leading to violence of all types, from homicides to suicides and mass shootings in schools, movie theaters, even churches.

BENEFITS OF COMMON-SENSE GUN LEGISLATION

  • Reduce Gun Violence in North Carolina
  • Reduce more than 31,000 annual gun deaths in the United States
  • Improve safety in homes, schools, parks, and all public places

The League of Voters of North Carolina is taking action to advocate for common-sense gun legislation in our state. You can help by staying informed and by joining our League Action Team. Our team engages in LWVUS monthly conference calls, Lobby Days, Op Ed submissions, Letters to the Editor, and person-to-person education.
