Petition Closed

Guns kill 25 people in America every single day. Ask President Obama and Congress to support gun-control measures that will make our country more safe while protecting American's Second Amendment rights; reasonable changes such as greater accountability upon owners, outlawing oversized magazines, mandating more durable serial numbers, enforcing extended waiting limits, reimplementing Clinton's limitations on assault weapons, and instilling severe penalties for mishandling of guns (including losing track of one). Each of these measures are reasonable, none infringe upon American's Second Amendment rights to bear arms, and the NRA opposes each and every one of them.

Letter to
President Barack Obama
I just signed the following petition addressed to President Barack Obama and members of Congress, and I hope you will, too.

Dear Mr. President and Honorable Members of Congress,

I support gun-control reform, and I ask you to pursue the following blueprint that is broad enough to gain support from some members of the gun-enthusiast ranks while being aggressive enough to actually make a difference in the abysmal gun-related mortality rate in this county.

Guns kill 25 people in America every single day. President Obama and Congress to support gun-control measures that will make our country more safe while protecting American's Second Amendment rights -- reasonable changes such as 1) greater accountability upon owners, 2) outlawing oversized magazines, 3) mandating more durable serial numbers, 4) enforcing extended waiting limits, 5) reimplementing Clinton's limitations on assault weapons, and 6) instilling severe penalties for mishandling of guns (including losing track of one).

Each of these measures is reasonable, none infringe upon American's Second Amendment rights to bear arms, yet the NRA opposes each and every one of them. Please stop listening to its money, and pursue laws based upon common sense rather than the whims of fat-cat K-Street Lobbyists.

Sincerely,
