New Gun Violence Prevention Group, Everytown for Gun Safety, Asks Americans to Join the Fight to Reduce Gun Violence

Almost a year after a minority of the U.S. Senate blocked legislation to require comprehensive gun background checks despite near-unanimous public support, a new organization will unite millions of Americans to help end gun violence and counter the Washington gun lobby: Everytown for Gun Safety.

At its center, the organization will house Mayors Against Illegal Guns, founded by former New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and former Boston Mayor Tom Menino, and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a grassroots movement of moms that was founded the day after Newtown. Everytown will ask Americans to join the fight to reduce the gun violence that kills 86 Americans every day and affects big cities and small towns alike.

As with just about every other aspect of our lives, the ways in which we can read books have undergone radical shifts over the past few years. Not long ago, hardcover and paperback were the main options available to readers, but then came e-readers and tablet computers.

With the additional options of reading on your computer or phone, it’s as though the only thing standing between Americans and a good read is setting aside the time. Americans seem to embrace broader options, as the majority (54 percent) currently reads e-books, including two-thirds of millennials (66 percent).
