It’s simple – the evidence shows that guns make us less safe. Firearms are the leading cause of death for children and teens in America, yet 75% of young people believe the myth that the presence of a gun makes them safer. A majority of young people say they are open to buying a gun in the future – but the facts clearly show that more guns only lead to more gun violence. Project Unloaded is changing gun culture by empowering young people to make a data-backed decision to keep themselves and their loved ones safe from gun violence.
Research shows that teens and young adults are forming opinions and making decisions about guns. Through creative and cultural campaigns, Project Unloaded provides accurate information about gun violence to inspire the next generation to choose on their own terms not to own and use guns.
SNUG is the first of many campaigns by Project Unloaded.
