For years, no one in our state had a comprehensive strategy to pass meaningful gun safety legislation. G-PAC has a winning strategy to pass laws aimed at reducing illegal gun access, holding lawmakers accountable, and changing the conversation around firearms in Illinois.
Founded in 2013 by survivors to counter the influence of the gun lobby in Springfield, we’ve made significant electoral investments to support lawmakers who are unafraid to push back against the gun lobby’s deadly agenda, and hold lawmakers who do not support life-saving legislation accountable. Most recently, we defeated an incumbent who failed to vote for universal background checks.
At the same time, we mobilize lawmakers and constituents to pass life-saving gun legislation in Illinois. We are dedicated to making public safety a reality because Illinois families deserve to live and thrive without fear of gun violence.
With support from a growing coalition of legislators committed to ending the epidemic of gun violence in Illinois, the G-PAC Illinois fights to ensure passage of a responsible, common sense gun safety agenda focusing on illegal guns and gun trafficking. See our accomplishments here.
Gun violence is a daily reality in America – but we’re fighting back by breaking the gun lobby’s hold on Illinois lawmakers.
G-PAC is building a political force to hold lawmakers accountable and continue the fight to keep our communities safe.
We have designed a plan to change Illinois – and we’re just getting started.
The math is simple: 60 votes in the house, 30 votes in the senate and 1 signature from the governor. It is critical we elect and maintain a gun safety majority in Illinois so we have the votes to pass legislation to keep our children, families and communities safe from gun violence.
We can save lives Illinois by casting ballots for endorsed gun safety champions committed to ending this public health crisis. G-PAC’s award winning social media campaigns have connected to gun violence prevention voters across the state.
