Stand Up to Gun Violence!

This petition had 2,158 supporters

Last year, in the wake of the atrocities at Sandy Hook Elementary School, courageous Democratic and Republican lawmakers in the Connecticut State Senate and State House came together to pass one of the most comprehensive gun violence-prevention laws in the nation. 

But extreme gun rights activists are not giving up. They are already working to unseat the brave legislators who voted YES on our historic reforms, and have been dominating the media with their blog posts, verbal threats, and their aggressive election activities. In fact, they are taking credit for legislators who are choosing not to run again, even though we know those decisions had nothing to do with their vote on the bill.

We need to stand up to the gun rights extremists by standing by our friends in the legislature. We will not give up one inch of ground, and we will not concede the safety of the people of Connecticut to their demands to repeal the 2013 gun safety legislation.
