Shooting after shooting, @RyanDBusse realized the gun industry he worked for was too corrupt to stand for what was right. In this in-depth profile, he explains why he left the industry and why he’s fighting for safe, responsible gun ownership. slate.com/news-and-politics/…

“The gun violence epidemic in America will not be solved by doctors. It won’t be solved by policymakers. It won’t be solved by gun owners… It will take the concerted action of all of us to address each layer of the complex issue that is gun violence." giffords.org/blog/2021/10/am…

.@RyanDBusse grew up hunting and always dreamed of working in the gun industry. But when he voiced support for gun safety measures like background checks, his co-workers tried to silence him. That’s why he left the industry to fight for what is right. slate.com/news-and-politics/…

With news today that a mass shooter will plead guilty, a reminder that the world does not need to know their name and face. Center the Parkland survivors and victims in the story. #nonotoriety

I have received messages today asking me to comment on the breaking murder trial news. My only comment is to remember the victims. Remember Jaime. Rather than talk about the murderer, please join us on Oct 23rd to celebrate Jaime's life by signing up at orangeribbonsdance.com

Side note to all of this, but @SunSentinel has run multiple tweets over today's Parkland news, never once showing shooter's image, and only mentioning name in downthread tweets. You don't need to blast his image all over Twitter.

In August, we filed a lawsuit against 3 makers of ghost guns w/ @KekerLLP & @GiffordsCourage. Today, I am humbled to announce the addition of a critical ally in this fight, @AGRobBonta. W/ the AG’s partnership, we are one step closer to winning the war against gun violence.

TAKING ACTION: Brady Chicago co-chair and gun violence survivor Delphine Cherry joined the @CCSOPIO to support a lifesaving bill to ban 'ghost guns' in Illinois. Bills like this can stop the spread of these untraceable weapons. #ghostgunsarerealguns #ILleg

“This is another public health crisis that needs our attention and action, and like any public health issue, it starts with prevention." Thank you @GovEvers for walking the talk and investing $45 million to prevent gun violence. urbanmilwaukee.com/pressrele…

People shouldn't have to fear being shot at work. We're thinking of the loved ones of James Wilson and Demetria Dortch, both USPS employees who were shot and killed by a coworker. We’ll never stop fighting for safer workplaces, schools, and communities. commercialappeal.com/story/n…

One of the hardest moments of being shot, was being treated as a criminal while fighting for my life. America will never end gun violence without addressing how our justice & health systems fuel violence through criminalizing & traumatizing survivors. time.com/6103401/hospitals-r…

The tragic truth is that gun violence will continue in all our communities until and unless our elected officials take action to save American lives. So we will continue to call on Congress to send commonsense gun violence prevention legislation to the president’s desk. Now.
