We can create educational awareness, outreach and a dialogue for gun violence prevention through the special interest license plate, "STOP GUN VIOLENCE". Once 450 applications are collected, Delegate Marcus Simon will submit legislation seeking its approval with the 2017-2018 Virginia General Assembly.
We have collected over 300 completed applications as of August, 2017. We just need 137 more to reach the DMV requirement of 450. Delegate Marcus Simon, Senator Dick Saslaw, Congressman Don Beyer, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (sponsor organization) and Lori Haas, mother of a student who was shot and survived the Virginia Tech shooting are behind this program.
ONE APPLICATION A DAY by December 31st and we will REACH OUR GOAL!
