“When there are these national shooting tragedies, people do want to get involved…often they want to get in quick, do something, and get out.
But that is not how activism works in this country.
I call it the unglamorous heavy lifting of grassroots activism. It requires you to show up over and over again.” ~ Shannon Watts

“We don’t win this until every lawmaker believes there will be consequences for not supporting the mainstream point of view, which is that you can have high rates of gun ownership and low rates of gun violence.” ~ Shannon Watts
Shannon: “We are going to get there. I guarantee you, we are going to get there. But we all need to use our voice and vote on this issue.”
Waylon: “That’s the kind of hope sauce that I can go for.”
Or, listen to the podcast:
“Just last summer, we passed the first federal gun safety legislation in a generation. 26 years. And we had 15 Republicans sign on. So, we are making progress. That’s a seismic shift in American politics.” ~ Shannon Watts
