Gabby Giffords, "Courage to Fight Gun Violence" involves all of us. Honestly I have little or no faith in the President, GOP or Congress. Change has always occurred from the power of the people.  "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."(Margaret Mead).  Today's petition is a moratorium  for America to participate in a "No gun purchase day" on Saturday, March 3, 2018, or enter any gun or pawn shop to purchase anything related to guns.

Since the beginning of the year there has been 18 school shootings that have occurred in the United States.  On February 14, 2018, seventeen adults and students were killed and more than 15 injured in the mass shooting at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  Domestic violence kills one person every three days in my home state of Arizona according to the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence.  They have estimated that domestic violence in Arizona will kill about 100 people in 2018.  Statistics with gun violence in America are shocking!  By signing this petition and forwarding it to others:

1.  This petition is only one step and will serve to open our eyes in protecting our children and the next generation.  More people will follow with actions they determine necessary!

2.  You will be helping to remove the shame off America because of the non-action of Congress and supporters of the NRA who have continued to resist common sense gun laws.

3.  This moratorium is dedicated as a day to honor all who have been killed by gun violence and offer hope for our future.  Would you be a voice of participation?
