Tell Congress: No money for guns in schools!

Skip to sign

In an unprecedented move, Donald Trump's Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos wants to allow school districts to buy guns with taxpayer dollars.

The gun lobby's push to arm teachers puts profits ahead of the safety of students and teachers and distracts from real gun safety reform. We can't allow their heartless, hazardous agenda to threaten our children's safety.

Guns have no place in schools.

Congress must pass comprehensive gun safety laws and block any moves to use federal funds to arm teachers.

Tell Congress: Stop Betsy DeVos from arming teachers and further endangering our children.
