Enact Universal Background Checks

    1. Sponsored by

      Americans for Responsible Solutions

With the legislative debate on gun violence right around the corner, the next few weeks promise to be challenging and filled with many ups-and-downs. But Mark and Gabby know that if we stick together and make our voices heard, change is possible.

Sign our petition calling on Congress to enact universal background checks for all gun purchases.

To:
Congress
I stand with Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly in urging you to take immediate action to reduce gun violence in the United States.

One reasonable solutions you could pass that would reduce violence while protecting responsible ownership would be universal background checks for all gun purchases.

I look forward to watching your progress and commitment to this important issue.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
