Statement of Conscience
Be it resolved that: Mount Vernon Unitarian Church advocates for measures that:
(1) deter and prevent the indiscriminate purchase of firearms for the use of violence against people who live in the United States;
(2) provide reliable and empowered safe-havens for people to report behavior that is threatening before a crisis occurs;
(3) provide funding at the federal level to enable the Centers for Disease Control to resume studying the causes of gun violence; and
(4) support the implementation of universal background checks for the purchase of firearms.
