A: Of course! We are people who care about children growing up in a world free of gun violence, so they can grow, thrive and be safe in their homes, at school and in their communities. If you agree, please join us!
A: We are NOT against guns. We are FOR gun safety, our Second Amendment rights to own and use guns responsibly, and common-sense protections for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, without compromising our Constitutional rights. See more here.
A: We pay a nominal fee for custodial support to the church where our monthly meetings are held, as well as costs associated with our web site, printed materials, some contracted services, the Lock it for Love project and the annual Heartland Coalition Community Forum. There is no staff; all board members and most providers of services (graphics, web site development etc.) donate or discount their time and talent.
A: Many other groups work on a national level to address concerns we share. We can have greater impact in our own communities, specifically in the metropolitan Kansas City area, and that is where we focus. There certainly is plenty of work to be done right here at home.
