Call on Congress to act on gun violence

    1. Sponsored by

      Organizing for Action

The families of gun violence have suffered too much for lawmakers to sit back and do nothing.

An overwhelming 90% of Americans support background checks for gun sales—but a minority of senators refused to listen to the people who elected them, and voted to block the bill.

Next week, Organizing for Action will personally deliver a letter to Congress from hundreds of thousands of people demanding action—but it will only be as powerful as the supporters behind it.

Add your name, and tell Congress: Take action to expand background checks for gun sales, and keep guns out of the hands of criminals.

U.S. Congress
I am one of the 90% of Americans who support background checks for gun sales. Please take action to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.

      We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing we set back the progress of humanity.

      I did not sign this petition. I believe that the government needs to do house cleaning on things such as Fast & Furious, where they comitted the felonys here. Ever killing is used for ammunition to end We the peoples Rights. People kill people, not guns. I gaurentee if it were possible to collect every gun in the world, people would still be murdered, whether it be by sword, knife, bat or a rock.

      What a dumb question... Guns are ok in the hands of Canadians, cross the bridge into Detroit & see how Americans use guns...

      Too many children & adults are being killed. 60 percent of U.S. homicides occur using a firearm, which is the 26th-highest rate in the world.
