Parents (and grandparents) Promise to Kids
The goal of Parents Promise to Kids (PPTK) is to get parents to vote for candidates who believe that the safety of our children is much more important than the right to own guns. We urge parents, grandparents and other concerned adults to sign a contract, found below and then post it on social media with the included instructions. The contract is a promise to kids that they will never leave their homes in fear of being attacked by people with assault weapons.
