Since the kickoff of our campaign in March 2013, Do Not Stand Idly by has evolved into a distinct strategy for action. Despite the constant rhetoric about curbing gun violence both by politicians in Chicago as well as those in Washington, very little action has taken place to make us safer. Meanwhile, innocent people continue to be killed and massive firearm manufacturing companies continue to make unprecedented amounts of cash selling their products to whoever will buy them.
It is time to hold these corporations accountable.
Companies like Glock, Smith & Wesson, Sig Sauer, and Berretta can reform the way in which they distribute firearms to ensure they don't fall into the wrong hands. Furthermore, they can create safer gun models to cut down on accidental gun-related deaths.
United Power, and any citizen concerned about gun violence in their city, can put the pressure on these companies NOW. Firearms corporations make a significant portion of their profits selling their products to police forces around the country. Our tax money sustains these companies. It is time our government to use its leverage to force these companies to reform their reckless policies.
