Every year, over 17,000 people in the US under the age of 19 are shot.*  


No single, simple action will reduce child accidents, teenage catastrophes 

and crime more than securing every gun in a home, vehicle and place of business.   


If you have a gun or access to one, REAIM at

preventable shootings NOW by clicking a link below.

Whether or not one believes that only a good guy with a gun 

can stop a bad guy with a gun, most can agree that fewer bad guys

(or severely mentally ill people) with guns will lead to fewer shooting crises


In successive national polls since 2012, over 90% of respondents, including 90% of gun owners, supported expanded, mandatory background checks on all gun purchases.*

How Americans use firearms--legally or illegally--

is key to saving lives and reducing injuries.


A man on death row for shooting a friend he argued with at a party

said the one thing he wished he had really learned about guns when he

was younger was: "After shooting someone, you can’t take it back."

All guns have triggers. All people do, too. 

With a gun in hand, or nearby, how one THINKS... about safety, responsibility

or conflict resolution can end, or save a life, or lives, in a heartbeat.

Some of the worst gun violence in the US today 

is in communities with the toughest gun laws. 


Inner city teens trapped in vicious cycles of poverty, unemployment, drugs,

retribution and real or perceived fear for their lives need better education, resources

and economic opportunities to believe that bullets can never solve these problems

As tragic and worrisome as terrorism and mass shootings are, together they

are less than 1% of annual gun deaths and injuries in the US for the last 30 years.

By the numbers

Every day 58 Americans aim a gun at themselves and end their lives. 


Suicides—including murder-suicides, where guns are used to take the lives of others first—are

the leading cause of shooting deaths in the US each year. While not every suicide can be prevented, 

nearly 90% of people who survive an attempt on their life DO NOT go on to kill themselves


Securing ALL guns in homes, easier access to mental health counseling, and distributing

suicide awareness and prevention materials at gun stores and firing ranges are proven

ways to help save lives. Learn more in links; the life you help save may be your own.
