On legislation

MFOL has passed 300+ gun safety laws since our founding.

In the five years since March For Our Lives’ founding, gun violence has transformed from a third-rail issue to an issue politicians can’t ignore. It was once unheard of for lawmakers to touch such a deep-rooted American trait like guns, using our lives as political pawns in their game to stay in power after the next election. We said, “Enough is enough,” and DEMANDED action. 

March For Our Lives has championed gun violence prevention legislation at all levels of the government to save lives and create a better, safer future. Our mission calls for something more bold and transformative than gun control alone. We call for a world that is re-imagined: a world where oppressive power structures are abandoned, and community is embraced. Band-aid solutions alone won’t get us there, which is why we fight for legislation that addresses the root causes of gun violence.

Every day without gun violence prevention laws is another day people die at the pull of a trigger. Young people refuse to die waiting for lawmakers to take action. So we put matters into our own hands and bring our fight to Congress. In just five years, we’ve passed over 300 gun safety laws, and we’re just getting started.
