People use guns but, in a sense, guns use people too. When we have the technology for violence easily to hand, our choices are skewed and we are more vulnerable to being manipulated into violent action.
Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

Here's the video for our contribution to the world Sing-along challenge from our Concert Across America to End Gun Violence in Chandler Hall at Old Dominion University, Norfolk on Sept. 24th. So special - we believe communities standing together makes a difference. Thanks so much to Cameron Moore for videotaping this performance.



ProPublica - the Pulitzer Prize winning non-profit source for investigative journalism - has been doing amazing work in terms of investigating and examining the issue of gun violence and gun proliferation in America. The special section on their website which organizes this work has great reporting, as well as some very well designed interactive tools.

The Virginia Center for Public Safety salutes ProPublica for their excellent work, and encourages everyone interested in distinguishing fact and solid research from the fiction, outright lies and propaganda perpetuated by the pro-gun lobby to visit the ProPublica website and examine their work for yourselves.

The Virginia Center for Public Safety is a non-profit, non-partisan grass roots organization dedicated to the reduction of gun violence in Virginia.

VACPS strives to accomplish this mission through awareness, education and advocacy. Our members represent a cross-section of racial, religious. professional and political groups.
