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


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.
