This petition is directed to 20 world leaders asking them to do what they can to stop their citizens from traveling to the United States until we enact strict gun control laws. Sadly, in the United States, it is money that matters more than life. Crippling the economies of our gun-friendly states can make a difference. Please share this petition with your friends on social media:  

"Dear President or Prime Minister:

"Every day, on average, 310 people are shot by a gun in the United States, with 100 of them dying. You don’t want one of those people to be a citizen of your nation.
 
"That’s why we are petitioning you to warn the citizens of your countries of the danger of traveling to the United States, whether for work or pleasure.
 
"Consider this: Americans make up 4% of the world's population but own about 46% of the entire global stock of 857 million civilian firearms. U.S civilians own 393 million guns. That is three times as many guns as the armed forces of the Russian Federation (30.3 million), China (27.5 million), North Korea (8.4 million), Ukraine (6.6 million), United States (4.5 million), India (3.9 million), Vietnam (3.8 million), Iran (3.3 million), South Korea (2.7 million), Pakistan (2.3 million), and all the other countries (39.7 million) combined.
 
"The signers of this petition not only want you to ensure the safety of your citizens, but to also help us ensure the safety of our friends and neighbors and families in the United States. If possible, we hope you will institute a total ban on travel to the United States. This sort of pressure from nations like yours will put pressure on our Congress (and state legislatures) to restrict the possession of guns and buy up those now in circulation.
 
"Thank you for helping to protect the lives of your people and for helping to protect the lives of ours."
