Gun Violence Restraining Order

You may know this, but in case you haven’t read, seen or heard any news lately: America has a problem with gun violence. In the first half of 2018 alone, there have been 25,573 gun violence incidents. These incidents have resulted in 6,296 deaths and 11,824 injuries. At this rate 34 people will die per day this year due to gun violence. My solution is not to take away all guns, as I know that is not realistic. The change I am requesting is the implementation of Gun Violence Restraining Order Laws in more states across the country. Gun Violence Restraining Orders empower law enforcement and immediate family members to petition a court when they think a person poses a threat to themselves or others with a firearm. This person is then temporarily prohibited from legally purchasing and possessing guns and requires them to turn over their guns while the order is in effect. Families and law enforcement are often the first to see warning signs that a person may be violent and this law gives them the opportunity to save lives, including their own. In a study from 2009-2016, 42 percent of people who committed gun violence showed warning signs before they did so. These laws give us the opportunity to stop 42 percent of shootings. If you are a citizen who has no plans of violently using guns, this law would only benefit you. It does not threaten any guns you may own now or in the future, but gives you the opportunity to save lives.

Tell companies to cut their ties with the NRA

With 96 Americans killed with guns on the average day, and murderers targeting our schools, churches and concerts, the American people are getting fed up with inaction on the part of our politicians. Although the majority of Americans favor stronger gun control measures, they never seem to happen. This is in large part due to the actions of a single organization, the National Rifle Association. Historically, the NRA supported hunting, marksmanship, safety training – and common sense gun laws. But a faction takeover of its leadership in 1977 brought into power a group with extreme views, which have now become the NRA party line. Many members of the NRA don’t support its more extreme policies. For example, 74% of NRA members support requiring background checks for anyone purchasing a gun, and 71% support prohibiting people on the terrorist watch list from purchasing guns – positions that are the opposite of the NRA stance. So why do they remain members? One reason is financial – NRA members receive valuable discounts on things like insurance and hotel stays. The myriad of discounts offered to NRA members by corporations are listed on the membership benefits page on the NRA site. These partners of the NRA include MetLife, LifeLock, eHealth, Norton Security, Allied Movers, NorthAmerican Van Lines, Hertz, Avis, and the First National Bank of Omaha. Indeed, the NRA touts the many special discounts as number two in its list of reasons to join the organization, and stresses the “access to hundreds of dollars in savings.” These corporate partnerships not only help the NRA attract and retain members, but also provide funds for the NRA that help fuel its extremist agenda. It’s time to tell companies that it is no longer acceptable for them to be associated with the NRA. Let’s send a message to the NRA membership benefits partners they must end sever their relationships with the NRA. This petition is aimed at 25 of the companies involved in the NRA membership benefits program. This is because 25 is the limit for a Change.org petition. Let’s start with these 25, and then go after the others later. In addition to signing and sharing this petition, please look at our Google document which lists all of the partner companies and contact information for them, and consider also reaching out to the companies directly to show your displeasure.
