Shannon Watts @shannonrwatts Founder of @MomsDemand, grassroots army of @Everytown. The @NRA’s worst nightmare. Author of “Fight Like A Mother.” IG: Jun. 03, 2019 1 min read

Last year, @MomsDemand helped stop the @NRA's federal bill to deregulate silencers - even after the gun lobby gave $30M to Donald Trump's campaign. The silencer industry took credit for writing the legislation, saying it could grow the silencer industry “by 10 times.”

When people hear the sound of a gunshot, they know to run, hide or call the police. Hearing and identifying a gunshot can mean the difference between life and death. Virginia Beach witnesses said they thought the gunshots were a nail gun or were coming from outside the building.

The most important thing in Virginia right now is to elect gun safety leaders in the state's 2019 elections. @MomsDemand volunteers are connecting with candidates before the June primaries and asking them to fill out our Gun Sense Candidate questionnaire. #valeg
