Tell us your thoughts

We know that there are tens of thousands of MoveOn members for whom the questions of gun violence, gun ownership, and gun control are deeply personal. For some, it’s because gun violence has impacted their life or that of someone close, and for others, it’s because gun ownership is a part of their life or their community. We want to learn more about MoveOn members’ experiences and thoughts about guns and hope you’ll be willing to take this quick survey.
