Gun Violence Survivors and Advocates To Hold Press Conference

Committee Refuses To Vote on HB 2744 – Raise the Age To 21


  • What: Press Conference 
  • Where: Capitol Agricultural Museum
  • When: Friday, April 28th, 1pm
  • Who: Survivors from Uvalde and Santa Fe, Advocates, and Leaders


The Community Safety Committee adjourned on Thursday without voting on HB 2744, a bill that would raise the minimum age to purchase a semi-automatic rifle from 18 to 21. Once again, the Legislature has failed to take action to prevent gun violence in our schools and communities.

Organizations from the Texas Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, survivors, and leaders will speak to the press and be available for questions. 

Texas Gun Sense advocates to prevent gun violence and other gun tragedies through education, partnerships, and policy change. Learn more at
