Congressman Ron Barber: Take the lead in Congress to address the epidemic of mass shootings.

Congressman Barber:

 When history calls, a leader answers the call.

On January 8th, history called. And again on July 20th in Colorado, and again on August 5th in Wisconsin, and again on September 27th in Minnesota, and again on December 14th in Connecticut, and still no leader has stepped forward.  Since 1982, 62 mass murders have devastated our communities, and America cries out for a legislative leader to drive the overhaul of our gun laws and return sanity to our schools, our workplaces and our lives.

The leader history is calling is you. Of all the members of Congress, only you were a victim in such a crime, and only you stepped up to serve your community because another's leadership in Congress was cut tragically short by a madman's bullet. You are the indispensable leader in standing up to the NRA and our do-nothing political culture to force legislative action to address this on-going and growing American nightmare.

We urge you to make advocacy for effective legislative responses to this problem (such as renewing the assault weapons ban, an extended clip ban, and improved mental health interventions, among others) your top legislative priority.

To:
Congressman Ron Barber
Rep. Trent Franks, Arizona-08
Take the lead in Congress to address the epidemic of mass shootings.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The Redcoats haven't been a threat since the war of 1812 was resolved. The 2nd and 3rd amendments are outdated.

      Now is the time to get meaningful legislation thru congress, background checks, assault weapons, extended clips, treat mental health like any other disease. Lets have a safer America for our children to grow up in. We can do better and we must.

      I love human beings. Assault weapons are completely unnecessary in civilian life.

      Because It is weighing on everyone's conscience except for the NRA. Their answer to violence is more violence. Their answer to gun control is a gun free- for- all! It should not be harder to adopt a dog than it is to buy a gun! Step up!
