Please come see this wonderful film, “Under the Gun” this Saturday, (which precedes the national premiere on the EPIX cable channel on May 15th), and participate in a public discussion afterwards with others (including legislators and law enforcement candidates) who want to do something about the gun safety issue. This is an example of voters working with advocates to find creative and real solutions to reduce the deaths and injuries resulting from gun violence. Pastor Rich Hendricks from the Metropolitan Community Church has agreed to moderate the forum.

Bob Babcock, PACG Economic Justice Forum Facilitator and Iowans for Gun Safety Board Member notes that “the cost of gun violence in America has been documented at over $174 BILLION annually, equal to over $500 for every person. We cannot accept a person being killed at a rate of one every 18 minutes and being maimed every 1.8 minutes. This is NOT the America I grew up believing in!” Bob believes we can come together to fix this problem. So please join him this Saturday to be part of the solution.

“This is, after all, a country that bans the U.S. Centers for Disease Control — which monitors car accidents, diseases and even lightning strikes — from studying gun violence.”
