Mission & Purpose

STOP OUR SHOOTINGS, INC. evolved following the accidental shooting that occurred to our 12-year-old daughter Shanelle on July 18, 1997. She was shot through the head with an unsecured and fully loaded 9mm semi automatic gun that belonged to a Federal Agent. To read the story, click here. The gun was left unsecured in a briefcase, combination set at "007" and left in the "Open" position. The shock of almost losing Shanelle was such a terrifying experience that it forever changed our family's future. Shanelle has had several reconstructive surgeries. Her latest surgery aired on Discover Health. We now go to schools teaching children about the real dangers of guns, advocate gun safety and responsibility, promote safe storage of firearms and the "Get Real" campaign.
