U.S. Congress: We Demand Action to End Gun Violence

    1. Sponsored by

      Mayors Against Illegal Guns

It’s time. Join more than 900 mayors and over 1.4 million grassroots supporters to demand that Congress take action to end gun violence.

Our efforts cannot bring back the 20 innocent children murdered in Newtown, CT -- or the 33 people murdered with guns every day in America. But we can prevent future tragedies by passing common sense legislation that will:

- Require a criminal background check for every gun sold in America

- Ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines

- Make gun trafficking a federal crime, with real penalties for “straw purchasers” 

Demand that your members of Congress support these legislative priorities.

To:
President of the United States
U.S. Senate
U.S. House of Representatives
President Obama and members of Congress: What’s your plan to end gun violence?

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I never signed this petition, I only simply clicked on the data to read it and then it automatically puts me down as I signed the petition. This is a fraud and it is wrong.

      Protect your citizens and FIRE the NRA which is about bringing more profit to the gun manufacturers instead of protecting the people.
