Keep Our Children Safe! Advance Meaningful Gun Legislation

This petition had 12,118 supporters

Pediatric Associates joins the American Academy of Pediatrics in advocating the advancement of meaningful gun legislation that keeps children safe. We want to see stronger state and federal gun laws that protect children, including a ban used on assault weapons like the one used in the tragedy at Stoneman Douglas High School. We also call for stronger background checks, solutions addressing firearm trafficking, and encouraging safe firearm storage. We will also continue to work to ensure that children and their families have access to appropriate mental health services, particularly to address the effects of exposure to violence.

By signing this petition, you are joining Pediatric Associates, the American Academy of Pediatrics and concerned pediatricians, parents, teachers, siblings, friends and citizens who will not rest in our pursuit to keep our children safe.
