Everytown For Gun Safety Claims Victory in State Legislatures

371 views

Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety and its affiliated groups are claiming they have won numerous victories across the country.

“Since legislative sessions began in January, gun violence survivors, advocates with Everytown for Gun Safety and hundreds of volunteers with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, in partnership with local and national gun violence prevention organizations, have canvassed their legislators, rallied at state houses and testified during hearings to support positive public safety laws and to speak out against deadly policies,” the organization says in a new report.

 

Among the victories Everytown claims, is the rejection of permitless carry.

 

“This legislation has now failed in 20 out of the 22 states where it was pushed. This session, South Dakota’s Republican governor, who is an NRA member, vetoed such a bill, as did Montana’s Democratic governor.”

 

While failing to override the governor’s veto of the measure, South Dakota lawmakers did vow to bring the issue up again.

 

According to US News and World Report, “Republican Rep. Lynne DiSanto, who sponsored the bill, said that she intends to return next session with such a proposal. DiSanto said that it's a "fight that is not going away in South Dakota."

 

Montana only requires permits inside certain city limits. If the proposed measure had been signed into law, the patchwork system would have become uniform statewide constitutional carry.

 

Everytown is also claiming victories in fighting the ability for students and faculty to carry guns on campus and the repeal of gun free zones from public colleges.

 

“These bills have now failed in 14 out of 16 states in which they were brought up, notably in Wyoming, Alabama and South Carolina.”
