Bill and Rose Davidson from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America will discuss legislative action to control guns in New Mexico at the Thursday, August 8 lunch meeting of the League of Women Voters of Central New Mexico.
They launched the Be SMART campaign to raise awareness that responsible gun storage – storing guns locked, unloaded and separate from ammunition – can save children’s lives.
Be SMART emphasizes that it’s an adult responsibility to keep kids
from accessing guns and that every adult can play a role in
keeping kids and communities safer.
During the 2019 session of the New Mexico legislature Moms Demand Action NM worked with lawmakers to pass a landmark
bill requiring comprehensive background checks for every gun purchase,making New Mexico the 21st state in the US to require them.
Rose and Bill Davidson are Ambassadors for Moms Demand Action NM and are presenters for the local BeSmart campaign. They became passionate to support the goals of this data-driven movement after the Parkland school shooting.
