After the horrific tragedy of Sandy Hook, I was made aware of a fledgling organization, Mom's Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, and the more I learned, the more I realized I had a passion for, and commitment to, its mission. That mission is not, in fact, oriented toward gun control but rather gun safety. Stated simply, we seek to promote keeping guns out of the hands of those who should not have them and to support legislation that makes guns safer. It is essentially an apolitical agenda and, without being presumptuous, I find it hard to imagine how the most ardent defender of the Second Amendment could oppose the concept of safety.

MEET | SARAH WYNTER
Featured 4.3-4.9.17 | I first fell in love with Sarah Wynter back in 2003 when she played Kate Warner on my then-favorite show, 24 (go ahead — pretend you didn't love Jack Bauer. I dare you). And she kept showing up on all of my favorite shows: Damages, Californication, The Good Wife, Goliath. And finally, she showed up in a close friend's Instagram feed, and I knew it was meant to be. I jumped at the chance to be set up with her, and on our first "date" we drank summer drinks in the middle of a snowstorm and spilled our life stories to each other. Because Sarah is that girl: the gorgeous one who lives big, laughs hard and makes you feel like you're standing in the sun. She's also a fierce activist and proponent of Mom's Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a maniacal crossworder, a Lego aficionado and a bit of a germaphobe (yes, she wipes down every surface before sitting in ANY plane seat, which I'm actually extremely envious of). Yep, this Australian-born, mom of three (boys!) is the whole package. Welcome to Sarah's week.
