There are enough guns in America for every man, woman and child.



62% of online sellers are willing to sell guns to people who can’t pass background checks.



 Every 17 minutes, a person in America dies due to a gun-related incident.



40% of gun sales in America are made without a background check. Which can put them in the hands of criminals, children, nearly anyone.

And despite both parties agreeing on stricter gun accessibility, and the 33,000 deaths a year caused by guns, no legislative action has been made.

Created by the BBH Barn, #DisarmTheiPhone is a Twitter initiative aiming to convince Tim Cook (Apple’s CEO) to remove the gun emoji. By doing so, the American people will stand together and show Congress that we want stricter access to real guns.
