Legislative Platform

  • SHP strongly believes in upholding the rights of gun owners – we do not support bans on firearms or believe the sole cause of gun violence is the gun.
  • Sandy Hook Promise Action Fund advocates for the creation and enforcement of existing gun violence prevention laws, policy and regulations in the areas of:
    • Mental Health & Wellness – identification, intervention and help for individuals who may want to hurt themselves or others.
    • Gun Safety – ensuring that those who should not have access to a firearm are restricted and that all firearms are kept safe and secure
    • Gun Lethality - reduction in the lethality of firearms – specifically in the area of magazine size.
    • Research – funding needs to be provided for research to identify evidenced-based policy and non-policy programs.
