Texas Gun Sense is the only Texas-based gun violence prevention organization in the state. We are experts in gun-related issues in Texas. We invite media contacts.

There are common-sense, evidence-based policies that the Texas legislature and leadership should enact that will save lives. Three priorities for Texas Gun Sense are:

•Universal Background Checks: Every gun sale in Texas should be subject to a background check, with appropriate exceptions.

•Extreme Risk Protection Orders: Allowing civil court judges to keep families and communities safe by restricting access to firearms for persons at extreme risk of suicide or homicide.

•Safe storage of firearms: Renewing the funding for the Texas Department of Public Safety safe firearm storage campaign, Keep ‘Em Safe Texas.

Please contact Texas Gun Sense for comment and context on gun policies that can prevent gun tragedies.

Texas Gun Sense is a statewide nonprofit and nonpartisan organization advocating for common-sense, evidence-based policies to reduce gun injuries and deaths. For more information, visit www.txgunsense.org.
