Why Should We Hold the Gun Industry Accountable?

Guns are the number one killer of kids and teens in America, but the gun industry continues to market their products to us, innovate to make them deadlier, and evade responsibility for the harm they cause.

Students Demand Action is demanding that the gun industry step up and take action to save lives. Raise awareness and encourage others to sign the petition through posts on social media.
