About the

Who We Are: We are a national grassroots, chapter-based organization dedicated to preventing gun death and injury and supporting victims and survivors of gun trauma. Like the majority of Americans, we favor sensible gun laws to protect our communities from gun-related trauma. We have come together to save lives by working for the adoption of sensible gun laws and to offer compassionate support to the victims and survivors of gun trauma.
Why We March: While we recognize that guns are necessary for hunting, law enforcement, and national security, we believe the easy availability of handguns and semiautomatic weapons is a threat to the safety of our children and communities. The problem of gun violence is more than just another political issue - it is a public health issue, a family issue, and a moral issue.
Our Goal: Through Million Mom March Chapters across North Carolina, our goal is to educate our citizens about the need for sensible gun laws, including: (1)licensing of handgun owners, (2) registration of handguns, (3) creating consumer product safety standards for guns, (4) closing the "gun show loophole," and (5) limiting gun purchases to no more than one a month.
