Heeding God's Call Needs You!


The campaign, led by Heeding God’s Call to End Gun Violence, to block the opening of a new retail gun store at the former site of Philadelphia’s most notorious gun shop, Colosimo’s, has moved to a new phase.

In October, the Zoning Board of Adjustments denied the variance needed to open the store, which decision, the applicant, Yuri Zalzman, has appealed to the PA Court of Common Pleas.  Heeding, working with neighborhood organizations and other interested parties, is working to make public the overwhelming community opposition to the gun store.  A Common Pleas hearing is likely in early Spring.

We will keep you informed as we know more about this issue.

Here's a reason to give to Heeding--

San Bernardino


It doesn't have to be this way!  It is time to stand up and join together to end this madness!


We will continue to suffer San Bernardinos, Umpquas, Newtowns, Auroras, Virginia Techs, Charlestons, and the everyday carnage in our cities until the American faith community OWNS the epidemic of gun violence.


That's what we're all about at Heeding God's Call to End Gun Violence, but we need your help!


Please give like you care!
