Mission Statement

Texas Gun Sense advocates for common sense, evidence-based policies to reduce gun injuries and deaths.

Description

What We Do

Increase public awareness - We give the public resources and information about gun violence and prevention and about federal, state, and local gun policy.

Bring people together - We facilitate the Texas Coalition to Reduce Gun Violence, bringing stakeholders together to explore policy solutions to gun violence.

Advance public policy- We advocate for sensible gun law reforms and are a reliable source of information to state and local policymakers.

Serve as a media resource - We supply the press with information on gun violence and policy issues that impact Texas.

Texas Gun Sense Top Priorities

  • Enact an Extreme Risk Protection Order law ("red flag" law). Extreme risk protection laws create a mechanism for civil court judges to order individuals who pose an elevated risk of endangering themselves or others to temporarily relinquish their firearms.
  • Enact universal background checks. Unlicensed gun sellers are exempt from having to perform any background check before selling a firearm - that is unsafe. Exceptions can be crafted as appropriate.
We seek volunteer help with research, writing, graphic design, and social media. Please join us.
