Stop gun violence! –> Stop nuclear weapons!

Stop gun violence — Stop nuclear weapons

The link immediately above says this:

Guns are designed to kill one person or dozens.  Nuclear weapons are designed to kill millions or hundreds of millions.

Guns and nuclear weapons are rooted in similar problems:

• Anger and fear cause someone to shoot a gun – and also to build and launch nuclear weapons.
• A temporary impulse can shoot a gun – or start a nuclear war.
• Big business corporations build guns and nuclear weapons for profits.
• Manufacturers of guns and nuclear weapons bribe and lobby Congress to continue building them.

People can organize at the grassroots to stop guns and nuclear weapons:

• Nonviolent grassroots organizing has accomplished much throughout history.
• People have made some progress even against guns and nuclear weapons.
• Nonviolent grassroots movements are organizing new efforts against guns and nuclear weapons.
