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.
