On the Election

The November 3 election is vitally important with regard to efforts to reduce firearm injury and death. The surest way to enact policies that can increase safety for all is to elect candidates who support those policies.

The GunSenseUs B.E.T. agenda is designed to enhance safety for gun owners and non-owners through policies that polls show over 70% of both groups support.

Building Consensus For Gun Sense


Since you’re here,  you’re probably concerned about gun injury and death in the U.S. So are we. Perhaps you think something needs to change.  So do we.

While you want change, you know there are diverse opinions. That’s for sure.

You’d like to talk about it, but you don’t want to get into an argument. We get it… who does? 

You need a place to learn, have thoughtful discussion and take action. Here we are!

 GunSenseUs (formerly Gun Sense Chester County – PA) is an all volunteer, non partisan, non-profit organization working to reduce gun injury and death in the U.S.

We aren’t “anti gun.” We recognize there are many responsible gun owners who have legitimate reasons for wanting to own guns. In fact, we have gun owners involved throughout our organization. We learn a lot from them.

People who don’t own guns also have a right to an opinion on these issues. After all, the presence of guns in our communities affects everyone.

How Do We Move Forward?

We bring together people who are concerned about gun violence — those who would never own guns and those who enjoy owning them — to explore areas of agreement — consensus.

There is consensus between gun owners and non-owners on several potential policy changes. We are advocating for three of them, our B.E.T. agenda, outlined below.
