On behalf of the staff at The Campaign, I wanted to thank you and all our supporters for what you have done in 2023 to help us carry out our mission of fighting for safe, gun-free schools, colleges, and universities across this country.
As I always say, this work doesn’t happen without you. The Campaign is embarking on year 16 and we will continue to offer our assistance in those states where we are needed to fight back against the gun lobby’s misguided efforts to push guns into our educational spaces.
Please review 2023’s highlights below and get ready for a busy year ahead.
Thanks for all you do,
Andy Pelosi, Executive Director/Co-Founder
The Campaign To Keep Guns Off Campus

Victories in 2023
Arizona Gov. Hobbs vetoed Guns On Campus plus five more victories in Florida, Iowa, Idaho, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Wyoming.
We lost a guns on campus fight in West Virginia, but rest assured, we will return.

This year is off to a fast start with dangerous bills moving in Florida and Iowa, already. We anticipate being active in a number of other states and we will also continue fighting for a Federal Assault Weapons Ban.
