Demand A Plan to End Gun Violence

Dear Friends,

It took only a few minutes for the shooter in Newtown, CT to kill a classroom of school children. And it will only take a few minutes for you to make your voice heard.

Call your members of Congress RIGHT NOW and Demand A Plan to end gun violence.

Yesterday, President Obama announced a new task force headed by Vice President Biden to address the epidemic of gun violence in America. He committed to delivering a set of concrete proposals no later than January that will be turned into law as fast as possible.

But, as he said, he can’t do this alone.

That’s why you and I need to step up. We need to let our representatives in Congress know — in no uncertain terms — that it’s time to act.

Legislation is going to take shape very quickly, and there are three common sense principals that must be included in any comprehensive plan:

1. Require a criminal background check for every gun sold in America.

2. Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that enable mass killing.

3. Make gun trafficking a federal crime, with stiff penalties for those who arm criminals.

We will never be able to stop all gun violence, but these steps will go a long way to preventing the next mass shooting and saving the lives of the 34 Americans who are murdered with guns every day.

Join me in making sure your elected officials know how important this issue is to you and your family.

Make the call right now and demand a comprehensive plan to end gun violence from your members of Congress:

Thank you for speaking up at this crucial moment!

5 Responses to Every day, 34 Americans are murdered with guns: #DEMANDAPLAN to End Gun Violence

  1. Let the dialogue begin—60-years too late!! The ‘seed’ is a relatively simple idea to create a ‘social experiment’, as a free-will effort by volunteers in a local American city or town, and invent a ‘no gun, no-deadly weapons’ local-only ordinance-based or local-law policy. Band-aid efforts, restriction on the deadliest weapons, the Brady Bill weapons, assault weapons—a determined shooter will succeed with a Saturday night special if he’s that insane. The model is ‘no deadly weapons’—police don’t need them if criminals don’t have access, in general, the British ‘bobby’ model, and plenty of cops I know would be thankful. I’ve worked on my version of a Ten Year Plan, and very true, resistance would be shouted from the burning roof-tops—but why not? Without public will, public unity–nothing ever happens in America, as far as positive change. So do it as an experimental ‘model’—police forces would work in such a town in cooperation with any-all other local regions, for emergencies, what they call a ‘mutual assist’ agreements already in place in almost all US municipalities. It CAN be done—’there is no way to peace, peace is the way’–name the Experimental Non-Violent Town after your dead, I suppose—it’s humiliating to be an American citizen sometimes—

    It is difficult for those not in the USA to understand the lust for guns in America. We also have very few gun killings.
