Keep Guns Out of the Hands of Dangerous People

    1. Sponsored by

      Everytown for Gun Safety

Every day, 34 Americans are murdered with guns, and we can't accept the flaws in our background check system that lead to these tragic deaths.

The recent shooting in Tucson is another tragic reminder of how easy it is for dangerous people to get their hands on guns.

Our gun laws are designed to prevent felons, the mentally ill, and drug abusers from purchasing guns.  But the background check system is broken, and loopholes in the law allow criminals to buy guns with no questions asked.

Please join 550 Mayors from around the country in sending a message to Congress to Fix Gun Checks by taking two important steps:

1) Get all the names of people who should be prohibited from buying guns into the background check system.

2) Require a background check for every gun sale in America.

      It would help if the Petition gave a more full account of exactly what the 550 Mayors said in their message to Congress. But I am all for some form of Gun Control. This country is seen as CRAZY by others, in how far we have gone in the dogma of NO controls whatsoever!
