CAN YOU CAN BE PRO-SECOND AMENDMENT AND PRO-GUN SAFETY?
These days, the gun debate rages at fever pitch. Media portrayals represent two polar perspectives - those who want no gun restrictions whatsoever and those who want to confiscate all guns - with little hope for finding common ground. Despite this, we know that for most people, gun regulation is a layered issue. Too often gun enthusiasts are lumped together as a single-issue group who believe any sort of regulation infringes on the second amendment and any gun safety legislation is a step toward total confiscation. The voice of the average gun owner – who believes you can be pro second amendment and pro gun safety – is being lost in the partisan fray.
WE BELIEVE THIS ISSUE WILL DRIVE VOTERS TO THE POLLS
Non-partisan, compelling digital media about gun culture, safety, and policy can have a real impact on civic engagement, driving new voters to the polls in 2018. Through this initiative, we create documentary-style media that raises awareness of a “middle way” on guns, one that protects second amendment rights and ensures the safety of law-abiding Americans. We also give voters tools to understand whether their elected officials adequately represent them on this issue.
