Another Mass Shooting in the Workplace: Business Must Act to Stem the Tide of Gun Violence
May 8, 2023
Washington, D.C. – Guns Down America released the following statement regarding the mass shooting at an Allen, Texas shopping mall that killed 8 people and injured 7 more, including children.
“While law enforcement still explores the motive behind this mass shooting, what is already clear is that we have too many guns in this country and they are too easy to get,” said Shannon Grady, interim executive director of Guns Down America. “We may not have a House majority that puts our safety first, but that doesn’t mean we are powerless. Corporate America must step forward and play their part in keeping us safe from gun violence and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer should immediately hold a vote on gun violence prevention legislation that will save lives.”
Guns Down America previously led successful corporate accountability campaigns that resulted in Walmart cutting back on the number of guns it sells, FedEx eliminating a discount for NRA members, and private insurance companies that were selling lucrative “murder insurance” to NRA members.
