About Texas Gun Sense
Mission Statement: Texas Gun Sense works to reduce gun violence by promoting effective gun laws through research and public awareness.
Texas Gun Sense supports the Second Amendment, and also believes that public safety can be improved by strengthening gun laws.
Almost 3,000 gun-related deaths occur in Texas each year. Texas Gun Sense is calling on state leaders to make targeted, common sense policy changes that can save lives. Read more here and learn about some of our goals:
