New York Students Against Gun Violence

TOP New York Students Against Gun Violence

Real Change is Possible

History provides moments where real change is possible. Many of the great social changes occur when the people are ahead of the politicians. The issue of sensible gun regulation provides that moment.

The people of New York were ahead of the curve when we passed the NY SAFE Act after the Sandy Hook massacre. History has unfortunately proven us right, and it is now time for the federal government to catch up.

Students are standing up to act when our politicians won’t in organized walkouts all across the State and Country. And we stand by them. We encourage students to continue to push their federal representatives to pass sensible gun regulation.
