Petition to U.S. Congress
Stop gutting federal gun laws
Now is not the time for silence. It's time for outrage. Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the hundreds of people that were killed or injured at the Mandalay Bay Casino mass shooting in Las Vegas, the worst in the nation's history. But sympathy will not save the 33,000 Americans who will be killed this year by gun violence. Legislators beholden to the gun lobby will no doubt say now is not the time to talk about gun laws. There is no other kind of attack on Americans that is met with this level of indifference. It needs to stop. Right now Congress is considering deregulating silencers which would make it harder to identify from where gunshots are coming in active shooter situations. The House is close to passing a bill making it easier for people to carry concealed weapons to any state in the nation with not so much as a background check. Tell Congress #Enough. Sign this petition to tell Members of Congress to: Vote no on H.R. 3668, the SHARE Act that would gut long-standing regulations on silencers and loosen restrictions on armor piercing bullets. Block H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act that would force states to honor the concealed carry weapons permits of every other state, regardless of how lax the other state's law. Ban weapons of war: assault weapons and large capacity magazines, which have no place in the hands of private citizens. (photo credit: D. Becker/Getty Images)
Petition to UNCC Administration, Chancellor Philip L. Dubois
To UNCC - Rename the University Recreation Center to Howell-Parlier Recreation Center
On April 30th, 2019, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte suffered its saddest day in history. A gunman opened fire on a classroom in the Kennedy building, and 2 students were fatally shot, and 4 were injured. The two killed were Riley Howell and Ellis Parlier. One of the victims, Riley Howell, fought against the shooter, but was killed in the process. His sacrifice helped save lives, and gave police enough time to stop the shooter before it got any worse. In honor of the tragic loss of Ellis Parlier and Riley Howell, I created this petition to ask the administration of UNCC and Chancellor Philip L. Dubois to rename the University Recreation Center after Howell and Parlier, so that it would be called the Howell-Parlier Recreation Center. Since construction of the recreation center is set to be complete in Fall of 2019, it would be respectful to do so, so that they can be remembered for generations of students to come.

Petition to Mitch McConnell, Donald J. Trump
The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 must be voted on by the Senate
I am a high school student and I am tired of living in fear that mass shootings, like the ones in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas, will continue to happen. The United States House of Representatives passed the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 in February but Mitch McConnell has not allowed the Senate to vote on it. It is time for this to change. If you support the Senate voting on the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 please take a moment of your time to sign this petition.
Petition to NEW YORK STATE PAROLE BOARD
Garth Cole MUST serve his 5 year sentence for driving the car that killed Michael Nolan.
On September 18th, 2015 Garth Cole drove the car that did the drive by shooting that killed Michael Nolan the innocent Oakland Athletics baseball in Yonkers,NY while Michael was standing next to his car eating a cheeseburger in the parking lot. Michael fought extremely hard for his life for three weeks in the hospital by unfortunately passed away due to his injuries. Garth Cole tried to sell his car days later to hide evidence and did not come forward until the Yonkers Police tracked him down along with the three other murders after six months. Cole who pleaded down to a lesser charge and cooperated with the police for his testimony accepted a deal of five years in prison for his cooperation. This upcoming December 4th, 2019 he is eligible for an early release from the New York State Parole Board and we can NOT allow that to happen. Cold MUST serve every single month, week, day, minute, and second apart of the 5 year prison term that he accepted. Garth Coles original release date is 2/24/21. Michael has unfortunately received a lifetime sentence and will never be able to get released from it so Garth Cole should not be let out any sooner then he is suppose to. I ask you to please sign and share with family and friends this petition in support of Garth Cole NOT getting out one second sooner then the original date that he was sentenced. He didn’t pull the trigger but he is just as much of a murder like the other three that were in the car, they all played a part in taking Michael away from us. I am also asking for people to write letters supporting that he should not be allowed out early and should serve every second that he should in prison. If anyone is interested in writing a letter also please contact me for details, I have to collect the letters. We must continue to fight for justice for Mike and all of the support is needed!

Individualized Emergency and Lockdown Plans for Special Needs Students
Throughout the US today, there is an immense push for a program called "Run, Hide, Fight." In the case of an active shooter situation, students should first try to run, hide if necessary, and fight if they must. It sounds simple enough, but this program completely disregards the students who can't physically accomplish these actions. Over 6.7 million students aged 3-21 received special education services in America just last year. Schools are struggling to come up with evacuation and emergency protocol for these students with disabilities--or worse, they aren't thinking of the issue at all. Since Columbine, there is a longstanding history of special needs students losing their lives in school shootings, primarily because there is no plan in place to evacuate them. It is imperative that we begin to prioritize the needs of these students with special needs, because no one deserves to feel unprotected. This petition is advocating for legislation to require schools to develop and implement individualized emergency and lockdown procedures (IELP's) for any student who needs them. Parents and educators must collaborate on these individualized plans, ensuring EVERY student is safe and taken care of.

Keep Our Communities Safe and Stop Those Charged With Murder From Receiving a Bond
My son, 20 years old was murdered 1/2/19. His was the 1st murder in Jacksonville, FL in 2019. To date, there have been 66 murders already this year! The one charged with my sons murder not only faces Murder 2 but two counts of attempted second degree murder and a charge of shooting at a moving vessel. He was just given the opportunity to bond out of jail! There should be absolutely NO REASON why someone who is facing a murder charge, much less 3, should have the opportunity to be free at any point until the charges are resolved. There are too many times an accused is released on bond and they commit another offense. This puts our community at risk! At what point do we quit giving criminals so many rights and start protecting the law abiding citizens? I would say that time is now!!! Laws need to be changed to protect the innocent (those facing no charges) not those facing murder charges! It's time for much needed bond reform.
