Overview

Life in America feels more dangerous today.



There are 40,000 gun-related deaths each year and nearly one mass shooting every day in the United States. Despite the annual death toll and sobering statistics, how can we turn fear into action? How can survivors fight back? When is enough finally enough?



There’s evidence that change is coming.



International gun policy consultant Thomas Gabor offers a roadmap of bold solutions that tackle every side of gun violence.



You’ll learn:


  • Why we need to create a gun licensing system, ban military-style weapons and enact stricter gun carrying regulations.
  • Ways to improve oversight of the gun industry and hold them accountable.
  • Why it’s critical to repeal laws like Stand Your Ground that enable lethal force.
  • About a grassroots bill of rights for people who reject a society awash in guns.




ENOUGH! is the most up-to-date guide for any change agent, activist, or concerned citizen who seeks a safer world.
