One of the reasons we are going to Vote Like Hell in the midterms is because of Congressional inaction on gun control. Every day, 96 Americans are killed with guns and hundreds more are injured. We’re not numb to gun violence but Congress is.

That’s why we are spotlighting the moving anti-gun violence song featuring c3 board member Rosanne Cash, who created this song along with Lori McKenna, Mark Erelli, Sheryl Crow, Josh Ritter and Anais Mitchell.

“You can learn to live with anything when it happens by degrees,” they sing, highlighting our collective responsibility for tolerating continued inaction and its costs. Anais Mitchell sings two minutes into the track: “I’ve seen little hands on little shoulders, children in a line, I’ve seen them lead away from school as the shots rang out inside, and I thought something had to change but somehow it’s become routine.”

You can find out where to buy the song here. All proceeds from the track go to Gabby Giffords’ Courage to Fight Gun Violence organization.

Rosanne is passionate about this issue. She has been an active member of Everytown for Gun Safety for years, appearing at and organizing benefit concerts, and taking to the pages of the New York Times to implore musicians to stand up to the NRA.
