In the wake of the most deadly mass
shooting in America since September 11th we can and must do
everything in our power to end this scourge of gun violence in communities
across our country. Doing nothing is NOT an option.
Congress MUST take action NOW to let
the government deny the sales of guns and explosives to known or suspected
terrorists, and close the loopholes in our existing background check system by
extending checks to gun show purchases and internet sales to keep more
criminals and would-be terrorists from buying guns. Both of these are
expected as amendments today. Congress also must take steps to ban the sale of
assault rifles and high capacity magazines to prevent more tragedies. How many
more innocent children and people must lose their lives from gun violence
before Congress acts?
Stand with advocates across the country
and let your elected officials know that inaction is not an option. Tell
your Senators to Vote for Common Sense Gun Safety Measures NOW! Ban sales of
guns and explosives to individuals known or suspected of being terrorists and
expand background checks to gun show and Internet sales.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Children's Defense Fund.
Inaction is Not an Option
Dear [Decision Maker],
In the wake of the worst mass shooting in American history, we have a responsibility to do everything in our power to end the scourge of terror, hate and bullets that break too many hearts and communities every day in our country. Doing nothing is a choice, and it is no longer an option.
