At Long Last, Change is In the Air

 

Justice Through Music has been advocating for strict gun laws for the past decade. In 2011 we released a music video tribute to Gabby Giffords after she was seriously injured in a mass shooting in Tucson.

Now, the time has come where young people are taking control of this issue, and change will come so fast and furious that the NRA killing machine and the politicians who take its blood money will suffer from whiplash after being ousted from office.

Common sense guns laws must be meaningful in order to be effective in stopping the killing of innocent people.

We want the following:

  • Ban all assault weapons
  • Ban all high capacity clips
  • Require universal, standardized background checks for all public and private weapon sales
  • Require licensing, insurance and education training for all weapon purchases
  • Enact an unlimited buyback campaign for all assault weapons
  • Destroy all weapons received from buyback campaigns
  • Repeal the laws that grant immunity to weapons manufacturers
  • Require a 21-year-old age limit for purchasing and owning weapons
  • Prohibit firearm possession by criminals, both felony and misdemeanor
  • Add gun violence to curriculum in all public school health classes
  • Complete divestment from all gun stocks
  • Ban gun companies from making donations to or lobbying politicians
  • Remove the NRA’s tax-exempt status as a public charity
  • Require the CDC to compile data on gun violence

These are coming–Generation, X, Y and Z are done with the lies, the window dressing, the prayers and the killing.

    Please give a listen to independent artist RoseAnn Fino’s song on gun violence Sorry(thoughts and prayers).

    “If you’re so scared of your fellow man
    You always keep a pistol by your right hand;
    Don’t say that you’re sorry when another kid dies.”

    NEW YORK, NY – In Astoria Queens, artists like RoseAnn Fino have something to give their fellow Americans who are deeply suffering due to gun violence. It’s not thoughts, prayers, or empty apologies; it’s action.

    This week, Ro released anti gun violence track “Sorry (Thoughts and Prayers),” a poignant, moving song that calls for action in the wake of recent, ongoing, senseless gun violence in America.

    Determined to lead by example, Ro has been taking her message to the streets, calling on her peers to take initiative and start important conversations with their music.

    “The gun culture in this country is a direct catalyst to the loss of young lives, I began writing this song in 2012 when Trayvon Martin was murdered. I couldn’t wrap my head around how a 17 year old boy unarmed could be shot down in the street and his killer could walk free. I would start writing the song and then put the guitar down, not quite sure I had the words or authority to write about such a heartbreaking topic. Shooting after shooting, whether it be in a nightclub or a school or sometimes even the police, drove me to finish this song. I wrote it for the victims and their families,” said Fino.

    An independent musician and activist living in Queens, Ro produces the controversial “Not My President Show,” event series; a monthly resistance bash featuring local performers that helps raise awareness and funds for organizations currently being underfunded or overlooked by our administration.

    Ro and her followers have raised thousands of dollars this year for organizations like Planned Parenthood and ACLU. Next month they’ll team up with Every Town for Gun Safety and Women Against Gun Violence, with a show in Queens featuring up and coming female musicians.

    “We live in a country that continually breaks the hearts of its people with senseless gun violence. We are in such fear of each other, we don’t look at the who is profiting off of our blood. I wrote this song as a plea for change. We don’t have to live like this.” – RoseAnn Fino
