Congress: We Demand Action to End Gun Violence

    1. Sponsored by

      Everytown for Gun Safety

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:
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
Members of Congress: Now is the time to pass common sense legislation to end gun violence and save lives. We Demand Action.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Our forefathers could never have imagined automatic weapons when the created the constitution. There is no place for these weapons for recreational/hunting use, none.

      Literally sick, tired and saddened that congress doesn't have the courage to stand up for what most Americans want: comprehensive background checks!
