CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION DEMANDING THE FOLLOWING:

THE U.S. SECRETARY OF EDUCATION should compile data on campus gun policies and include it in the Department of Education’s College Navigator database.

COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY PRESIDENTS should make sure campus gun policies are clearly explained in college websites and publications and in tours and presentations given to prospective students and their families.

COLLEGE RATINGS PUBLICATIONS AND WEBSITES – such as U.S. News & World Report, College Niche, Kiplinger, The Princeton Review, The Fiske Guide and others – should include this information in each college review.

PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS that serve high school college counselors should make this information available to their members and encourage them to share it with prospective college students and their families.


 

GCC is a leader in Metro IAF's Do Not Stand Idly By gun violence reduction campaign. This national campaign is calling on law enforcement officials and gun manufacturers to build a demand for modern arms technology. 

On a local level, GCC is calling for a county-wide law enforcement initiative consisting of federal, county and city authorities to halt the pipeline of illegal guns and hold accountable those responsible for their flow into our neighborhoods.

On May 29, GCC gathered 1,000 people to call on local officials to create a law enforcement initiative whose responsibilities would include: 

  • trace illegal guns to where they were bought – gun stores, gun dealers.
  • Investigate straw purchasers, multiple sales and stolen weapons.
  • Pursue any illegal activity
  • Prosecute gun dealers and gun traffickers who are selling guns illegally. 
  • Work with gun stores and dealers to prevent illegal sales.
