Petition to U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, Donald Trump

Congress re-address gun restrictions.

“Here we are again – in the aftermath of another terrible, inexplicably shocking and painful tragedy. This time – in Las Vegas."(where 59 have died and over 500 people are wounded on Oct. 2nd 2017) “It’s too much to even process. All these devastated families who now have to live with this pain forever because one person with a violent and insane voice in his head managed to stockpile a collection of high-powered rifles – and used them to shoot people.” “The House of Representatives will be voting on a piece of legislation this week. It’s a bill to legalize the sale of silencers. For guns. This is what they’re working on. We have a major problem with gun violence in this country – and I guess they don’t care.” I don't know what else to do besides sign petitions, pray and love on my community.  Sign this petition to tell Members of Congress to: 1. Vote no on H.R. 3668, the SHARE Act that would gut long-standing regulations on silencers and loosen restrictions on armor piercing bullets.  2. Persons on the 'no fly list' being unable to purchase guns full stop. 3. Stricter background checks and monitoring/documentation of gun owners to gun restrictions for mentally diagnosed persons. I hope this changes the conversation in the senate from promoting more accessibility to guns to stricture, more controlled measures. For the sake of my future children and my fellow Americans children and loved ones please sign the petition.  The above excerpts are from Jimmy Kimmels monologue this evening.

Petition to Celgene , Greg Geissman, Mark Alles

Tell Celgene Biopharmaceuticals to stop getting people shot

It sickens me that every day in America more than 90 people are shot by a gun. Our rate of gun violence is more than ten times higher than most other countries. Gun violence is a public health science issue of epidemic proportions. It is clear to police, doctors, and public health officials that it requires evidence-based solutions. Despite this, Celgene enables gun violence in America by giving tens of thousands of dollars to members of Congress who reliably vote against evidence-based solutions (such as the ones proposed by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence) because the members of Congress are in the pocket of or fear the NRA. The NRA and their backers in the gun industry oppose numerous evidence-based gun violence solutions, preferring their own marketing slogans that are not supported by science. Just as Celgene would never send a cancer patient to a snake oil salesman, they also have a moral duty not to put the public health safety of Americans in the hands of people who tell lies in the name of making a buck. Their behavior is not in keeping with science and they are not true to their own words that "[Celgene is] committed to improving the lives of patients and advancing the course of human health in the interest of global prosperity and progress" Tell Mark Alles, CEO of Celgene, that it is time to stand on the side of the American people and not the NRA by never supporting politicians who vote against evidence-based public health policies to reduce gun violence.
