This is the state of America's gun violence crisis:

Since President Trump took office, over 75,000 people in America have been killed with a gun. There have been nearly 700 mass shootings. At least 3,300 children shot and killed. Over 1,000 women shot by intimate partners. #SOTU
This is the state of America's gun violence crisis:

Children learn to hide during active shooter drills. Parents live in fear their kids won’t come home. Families fall asleep to the sound of gunfire. People find themselves mapping escape routes in case they hear gunfire. #SOTU
Last year, millions of Americans—inspired by young people—took to the streets to demand safer gun laws. Voters promised that if Congress didn’t take swift action to pass those laws, they’d elect new leaders who would. And they did. #SOTU
Just weeks into the new Congress, a bipartisan background checks bill was introduced. But we've heard nothing from the president.

Rather than push for policy solutions to save lives from gun violence, he shut down the government for 35 days for a crisis of his own making. #SOTU
Mr. President, stop manufacturing your own crises and start acknowledging the gun violence crisis that’s impacting every family, causing heartbreak in every community, and devastating the nation. #SOTU giffords.org/2019/02/gabrie…
