What does Stop the Violence Day represent?

National Stop the Violence Day is a day when many radio and television stations encourage their audience to stop street violence. With tens of thousands of individuals injured or killed as a result of gun violence every year, it is in our best interests to curb this dangerous epidemic. Here are some of the most haunting and eye-opening quotes on the issue of gun violence.

“We lose eight children and teenagers to gun violence every day. If a mysterious virus suddenly started killing eight of our children every day, America would mobilize teams of doctors and public health officials. We would move heaven and earth until we found a way to protect our children. But not with gun violence.”— Elizabeth Warren

“The number of Americans killed since 9/11 by terrorism, it’s less than 100. If you look at the number that have been killed by gun violence, it’s in the tens of thousands. And for us not to be able to resolve that issue has been something that is distressing.”— Barack Obama

“Each and every child in this country is valuable because they are our future as a society. We cannot afford to lose a single child to ill-health, under-education, abuse, addiction, jail, or gun violence. America’s highest goal should be for every child to grow up to be a successful young adult — healthy, educated, free, secure, and a good citizen.”— John F. Kerry

“Gun violence is not something that appears just in a bad neighborhood or in another part of the world. It appears right here, right outside your door.”— Stephen Young

“There’s no more personal issue than gun violence; every one of these stories is a life lost, I’m hoping that over the long term, as I tell these stories, that it will help to open people’s eyes.”

— Chris Murphy

“I do not accept that we cannot find a common-sense way to preserve our traditions, including our basic second amendment freedoms and the rights of law-abiding gun owners, while at the same time reducing the gun violence that unleashes so much mayhem on a regular basis.”— Barack Obama

“Only with gun violence do we respond to repeated tragedies by saying that mourning is acceptable but discussing how to prevent more tragedies is not. But that’s unacceptable. As others have observed, talking about how to stop mass shootings in the aftermath of a string of mass shootings isn’t ‘too soon.’ It’s much too late.”— Ezra Klein

“Gabby Giffords deserves a vote. The families of Newtown deserve a vote. The families of Aurora deserve a vote. The families of Oak Creek, and Tucson, and Blacksburg, and the countless other communities ripped open by gun violence – they deserve a simple vote.”— Barack Obama
