The summit will feature experts, thought leaders, key advocates from across the country, and fellow Americans who have been personally impacted by gun violence. Participants will hone the skills needed to effectively engage friends, neighbors, media and elected officials in our national conversation about gun violence, and learn about what they can do in their community to help reduce gun violence.
The summit will close with a powerful day of citizen lobbying, as we join together to spread our message throughout the halls of Congress!
2014 Brady National Summit: Bring It Home!
[I find the language used very interesting. “Thought leaders”? “Hone the skills needed to effectively engage…”? “Spreading our message”?
We don’t want people to have their “thoughts led”. We want people think for themselves.
We don’t “hone our skills” to engage people. We arm ourselves with facts.
We don’t “spread messages in congress”. We demand our congress critters obey the law and respect our rights.
They think differently from me. Perhaps more different than I can think.—Joe]
