California Moms Declare #NotOneMore

On May 23 a killing spree occurred in Isla Vista, California near the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara.  The assailant killed seven people including himself and wounded thirteen people.   In the aftermath of the incident California dad Richard Martinez, whose son was killed in the Santa Barbara shootings, said the following:

“Today, I’m going to ask every person I can find to send a postcard to every politician they can think of with three words on it: Not One More. People are looking for something to do. I’m asking people to stand up for something. Enough is enough.”

As California moms, we stand proudly alongside Richard Martinez and ask you to join us in declaring #NotOneMore.

Time For Justice Message Showing Law And Punishment

STATISTICS

  • This is not the first incident that has involved gun violence affecting our schools (ie Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois University, Harvard, University of Texas, etc..).
  • There has been a school related shooting every other day in January 2014, February 2014 & April 2014. Check list of school shootings for a full report.
  • According to the Children Defense report on Gun violence,  since 1963, three times as many children and teens have been killed by guns on American soil than U.S. soldiers have been killed in action in wars abroad. From 1963-2010, 166,500 children and teens were killed by guns in the United States, while a combined total of 52,183 U.S. soldiers were killed in the Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq wars.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

  1. Send a postcard to your local representative:  Send a postcard to your members of Congress and Governor to tell them that enough is enough and we demand action to protect our children from future similar incidents. We want the loopholes closed that allow dangerous people to purchase guns.
  2. Sign Santa Barbara Not One More:  Tell Congress: “I join Richard Martinez and demand immediate action to curb gun violence — NOT ONE MORE. Pass gun safety policies like comprehensive background checks on all gun purchases now.”
