Stay Informed & Help Stop the Coronavirus Gun Surge
Americans are responding to the coronavirus pandemic by stocking-guns and ammunition, a trend that could increase suicides, domestic violence incidents, and unintentional shootings. That’s why we must work together to #StopTheCoronavirusGunSurge. Sign-up for daily updates on what you can do to help keep your community safe during this uncertain time.
We are already losing lives to the panic. A man in Albuquerque who told authorities he bought a gun because of the coronavirus outbreak shot his 13-year-old cousin on Thursday, March 19th, killing him. He didn’t think the gun was loaded.
That’s why we’re standing up the #StopTheCoronavirusGunSurge campaign: to inform the public, particularly first-time gun owners, about the danger of panic-buying guns.
