I wanted to share an important new campaign with you. Today, our affiliate States United To Prevent Gun Violence introduced “Carrier Or Killer,” the game that gives players seconds to make a life-or-death decision.
The game was created in an effort to demonstrate the real-life consequences of corporate gun lobby measures currently moving through Congress, such as Federally Mandated Concealed Carry. FMCC would further normalize the carrying of deadly weapons in our public spaces and force to states recognize permits for hidden, loaded guns from all fifty states.
More guns in public will only create more confusion among emergency first responders, law enforcement, and bystanders who are forced to decide what the true intentions of gun holders are, and then act. Are these people carrying in the name of “self-defense,” or do they want to kill? How can anyone tell the difference?
