Gun crimes -- the illegal use of guns – create an unsafe environment in which our citizens do not feel secure at home in their own communities. There are numerous laws already in place that make it illegal to fire a gun in an urban area. Greater focus must be placed on enforcing existing legislation.
And you can influence that.
Encourage your representatives to promote community safety and address gun violence through upholding existing gun legislation around the illegal use of guns.
In addition, you can get involved today in a variety of programs such as:
