On 2nd Anniversary of Parkland, Florida Mass Shooting, “Gun Safety-Certified” Corporate Symbol Launched by Parents of Victim Joaquin Oliver, Survivor David Hogg and Stop Handgun Violence
Parkland, Florida Victims/Survivors launch new corporate symbol that will enable businesses to show support for sensible gun safety laws.
“This new Gun Safety-Certified symbol is an opportunity for consumers and businesses to show their support for effective national gun safety initiatives like mandatory background checks that have proven to work in many states across the country without banning most guns,” said John Rosenthal, a real estate businessperson, gun owner and founder of Massachusetts-based Stop Handgun Violence.
Massachusetts has reduced the rate of gun deaths by 40 percent since 1994 and now has the nation’s second lowest gun-related death rate. Proving that gun laws save lives without banning most guns, Massachusetts has become a national model for gun violence prevention.
Ah, good ole Massachusetts gun safety.
