 Seattle Mayor Ed Murray signed into law two innovative measures to reduce gun violence: a tax on guns and bullets (with money raised to be used for gun violence research and prevention) and a requirement that gun owners report lost or stolen firearms within 24 hours. Thank you, Seattle!


Huge thanks to the Seattle City Council!! Grandmothers Against Gun Violence is feeling very lucky to have such leaders as Council President, Tim Burgess, and Council Member, Sally Bagshaw, who walked with Grandmothers and then voted for two new gun sense measures that passed 8-0. And a mighty shout out to all the grandmothers, grandfathers, and grandchildren who walked the walk…and with such spirit!

Our vision is to seek a safer world for our grandchildren and for theirs. Welcome to a growing grassroots organization. We came together after the terrible tragedy in Newtown. We are grandmothers. We are women who want to use our voices in a civil conversation about gun safety, about ending gun violence in our towns, cities, and nation. Founded in Seattle, we encourage other grandmothers across the country to come together and join us. We remember that it is women who spark so much positive social change, whose determination to stand up can change a culture.
