After an elementary school shooting in Dunblane, Scotland, UK citizens adopted the Snowdrop Campaign to ban private artillery. We are using the name Bluebell Campaign for the common flower of Texas, to honor the children killed at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, TX, and all the people killed at the Walmart in El Paso, as well as all the people killed in gun massacres across the U.S. 

Uvalde: AR-15
Buffalo: AR-15
Boulder: AR-15
Orlando: AR-15
Parkland: AR-15
Las Vegas: AR-15
Aurora, CO: AR-15
Sandy Hook: AR-15
Waffle House: AR-15
San Bernardino: AR-15
Midland/Odessa: AR-15
Poway synagogue: AR-15
Sutherland Springs: AR-15
Tree of Life Synagogue: AR-15

Murderers with Military Style Assault Weapons have caused entire communities to mourn, again and again. Enough. No one needs an automatic weapon to hunt or to defend their home from an intruder. Instead, we see again and again that these weapons, both those illegally and legally obtained, are used in mass killings that do not occur anywhere else in the world.

We call on the U.S. Congress to ban them now!

Furthermore, is it not common sense that all gun purchases should include a full background check, with at least a fifteen-day gap between application and purchase, so that law enforcement has time to fully vet the buyer?

We call on the U.S. Congress to pass HR8, which would be a start toward universal background checks and closing current background check loopholes! 

Truly, all of us are at risk of gun violence, in our places of worship, our schools, our grocery stores, and other public places. Let’s do this so that we can mourn less and live more! If we don’t, we will be forced to accept gun violence that is entirely preventable. 

Please sign, for the sake of our children and our elders and all vulnerable people in our communities! And then please share this petition on your own social media accounts using the buttons to the right. Or simply email it to your friends! 

Further, your donation will help us boost the visibility of this issue and the Bluebell Campaign.
