Thanks for having the guts to stand up against gun violence

    1. Sponsored by

      Everytown for Gun Safety

Recently on Sunday Night Football, NBC sportscaster Bob Costas spoke up about the epidemic of gun violence in America.

He was addressing an incident from late November, when Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher took his own life at Arrowhead Stadium after shooting and killing the mother of their three-month-old baby.

It’s a tragedy. And when so many gun murders go unnoticed by our media and ignored by our leaders in Washington, it’s important to recognize public figures like Costas who have the courage to tell it like it is.

Will you send a note to Bob Costas thanking him for having the guts to stand up? We’ll make sure he gets it.

Make no mistake – Bob Costas will also hear from those who believe that discussions of gun violence have no place in our public discourse.

The truth is that common-sense reform of our gun laws, like background checks, would save many lives. And working together, we’ll get there. But first, we need Washington and the media to recognize the problem, and to participate in a national conversation about our gun laws – one that President Obama called for in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Tucson, Arizona.

Help us make sure Mr. Costas hears from people who believe we have a responsibility to end the violence that takes the lives of 34 Americans each and every day.

Let’s support Costas for having the courage of his convictions. Send him a message right now.

To:
Bob Costas
Thank you for speaking out against gun violence. We need elected leaders and public figures like you to recognize the problem of gun violence that kills 34 Americans every day. I’m grateful for your courage in standing up for all those who have lost a loved one to needless gun violence.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      WI support this petition because it is not only about the placing of guns into the wrong hands; it is about the testing of various technologies that affect the minds of those who commit these acts against innocent men, woman and children. This is a critical issue and must be addressed by those who continue to authorize the funding for the testing and evaluation of these mind-controlling technologies on unwitting citizens of this country. It is easy to prey on the weak in order to incite or encourage violence against another human being when you place illegal rounds of ammunition into their hands. This action alone continues to incite unwitting American citizens into fear when the direct effort is to continue to justify and fund an unnecessary need...the continued development of needless (WMD) weapons of mass destruction and the continued TRILLIONS poured into budgets ANNUALLY to develop privacy and kill drones (30,000 additional approved to be released over the U.S. skies), satellites as weapons, military grade hovercrafts, (all with the ability to see through our walls at our every private moments) and other weaponry including chemical and biological (chemical trails sprayed daily into our skies) that only affects the minds and bodies of innocent unwitting citizens everyday. These continued acts against our citizens are only about the trillions earned by these contractors, researchers and others each year as they attempt to justify this ridiculous and dangerous need. It is only about the money. So, yes, limit the rounds of bullets available to those who's minds have been affected by psychological technology, but if any group or person wants to arm a person made 'crazed', they will arm them to kill the innocent. Change the laws about surrounding the use of these needless technologies that continue to be developed, tested and evaluated on unwitting citizens, per every Senate Appropriations Budget to contractors, researchers, and agencies. Make laws that makes it a crime to point, testing and/or evaluation any technology that continues to be illegally used or pointed at any citizen, a crime by death and that will stop the Drone attack testing, hovercraft attack testing, and satellite attack testing; all with the capabilities to affect a persons entire body, including their mind, as they sleep.

      hy is this important to you?
