Vermont is not immune from gun violence

Gun violence impacts all of us, out in the open and behind closed doors – from our children who live in fear of being shot in school, to victims of domestic violence, to the grieving parents of suicide victims. Gun violence is tragic, damaging, and pervasive. And we have had enough.


GunSense Vermont

is Vermont's only independent, non-partisan gun violence prevention group. We are a movement of Vermonters focusing on transformation at the state level, because that is where laws are being changed and individual action has the most impact.

Upcoming Events & Dates to Note

Wednesday, Jan. 29, 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

Mental Health Advocacy Day


Find your legislator here and schedule a meeting with them today! You can meet them in the cafeteria between 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. where bagels and coffee will be provided, or  meet with them for lunch at noon (provide or buy your own lunch). 

There is no one answer to ending gun violence and suicide. Restricting access to guns by people who are at risk of harming themselves or others is crucial. So is increasing access to mental health care and support. GunSense VT is proud to be a co-sponsor of this this important advocacy day organized by The VT Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. They are providing training on the morning of the event... great for this advocacy day and others!
