The Impact of Gun Violence

Far too many Americans have been impacted by gun violence. The stories of survivors and families of those taken by gun violence often go untold. Acclaimed director Spike Lee recently sat down with several NBA All Stars and dozens of members of the Everytown Survivor Network to hear how this issue has affected them - and what they're doing to effect change.

  1. “This is our new mission in our life. This is what we have to do, is to try to make a difference so that other families don’t feel what we feel.”

  2. “We’ve got to really figure out how not to fight all these isolated events, and figure out what’s the major plan.”

  3. “It’s a whole cycle of what could we have done differently for the outcome not to be the same.”

  4. “Whatever we can do to hopefully change our culture, that’s what we’re here for.”

  5. “When something like this happens, you don’t just take that life – you take generations that I’ll never get to have because she’s gone.”

  6. “Every time something happens, you always wonder – could that have been one of my family members?”

  7. “I think it’s going to take people rising up, organizing, making their voices heard about this issue in a way that they haven’t before.”

  8. “The reality is there are a lot kids around this country who feel like they have no hope, and they’re using guns at an alarming rate.”

  9. “I think that the power to make the change is in the survivor stories. Showing everyday people that have this tremendous loss raises awareness.”

  10. “What keeps me going is knowing that I’m saving somebody else’s life. That I can look in the mirror and know that I cared more about saving others, other than just my child.”

  11. “There was something in me that knew that there’s more that could be done on this issue, and that I needed to be part of the solution.”

  12. “We need the American public to stand up and say ‘We’re not going to do it this way any more.'”

  13. “When you bring a gun into the house, you are significantly more at risk for shooting yourself or someone else in the house versus shooting an assailant.”

  14. “The saying goes ‘You live by the sword, you die by the sword.’ No – that’s not true. Sometimes you get caught in the middle of it.”

  15. “It wasn’t my gun, it wasn’t my house. It can affect anybody at any time. It’s senseless, and it doesn’t need to be going on.”
