rjvnys-logo-nyagv-coalitionThe Reform Jewish Voice of New York State is the latest new member of the New York State Coalition to Prevent Child Access to Guns.

NYAGV is organizing the coalition to build support for the enactment of A8293, Nicholas’s Law, a child access prevention (CAP) law requiring the safe storage of guns.

The coalition now includes 35 organizations with names such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, the New York State PTA, the Children’s Defense Fund of New York State, and many other groups fighting to keep our kids safe.

Nicholas’s Law will help prevent accidental shootings and suicides among children, school shootings, and gun thefts.  The bill is named for 12-year-old Nicholas Naumkin, who was shot and killed by a friend playing with his father’s loaded and unlocked gun.

See the list of coalition partners here.

Sign the petition for Nicholas’s Bill and share it with your friends to ensure guns are kept locked and safely stored away from children. >>
