Everytown was formed in 2014, a year after Congress debated the issue of background checks following the Sandy Hook shooting. The nonprofit was formed out of a partnership between Mike Bloomberg’s gun control initiative Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which was launched in 2006, and the grassroots movement Moms Demand Action.
