Tell Congress: Keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people

    1. Sponsored by

      Everytown for Gun Safety

Every day that goes by without reform, 34 more Americans are murdered with guns. That’s the equivalent of a Virginia Tech massacre every 24 hours.

That’s why a coalition of more than 600 Mayors has joined together to call on Congress to finally fix loopholes in our background check system that allow dangerous people to get their hands on guns.

More than 400,000 Americans have signed our petition. And legislation to fix gun checks has been introduced in the Senate and House. 

From Virginia Tech to Tucson, we’ve seen the deadly cost of our broken background check system. Please stand up and help protect our communities from senseless gun crime.

To:
U.S. Congress
I am joining more than 600 U.S. Mayors in calling on members of Congress to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people by taking two critical steps:

1. Get all the names of people who should be prohibited from buying guns into the background check system.

2. Require a background check for every gun sale in America.

      YES! Take guns away from law abiding citizens by passing laws and the only ones with guns will be police and criminals! This is beyond stupid and short sighted.

      I went to a gun and knife show this weekend and watched all sorts of people purchase guns and walk out the door without identification, paperwork, etc. I feel sure the likelihood of at least one family losing a member due to this is high.
