Based on an idea from Joe's. An overview of the name changes of the larger gun activist groups in the US.
National Coalition to Ban Handguns (1974-1989) became Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.
National Council to Control Handguns (1974-1980) became Handgun Control, Inc (1980-2000) which became the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. (in 2001 the Million Mom March folded into the BC while under investigation for tax fraud)
One Million Moms for Gun Control quickly rebranded as Mom's Demand Action For Gun Sense in America (2012-2014) which then became Everytown for Gun Safety (when it combined w/ Mayors Against Illegal Guns MAIG 2006-2014)
