Major Action Against Gun Manufacturers

  • McCormick Place Chicago McCormick Place Chicago, IL United States (map)

Do Not Stand Idly By, our national market-based organizing strategy to reduce unnecessary gun violence and deaths by pressuring gun manufacturers to adapt safe gun technologies, will be in action at the International Association of Police Chiefs annual convention. Four of the top 10 manufacturers of guns recovered at crime scenes in Chicago—Smith & Wesson, Sig Sauer, Glock, and Beretta will be exhibiting their guns for the police chiefs.
United Power for Action and Justice—along with key allies from other cities who are part of the “Do Not Stand Idly By” campaign—will announce a new initiative with religious, civic, and police leaders to engage the CEOs of these companies in efforts to help reduce gun violence in Chicago and throughout the country.
