Take a Stand Against Gun Violence!
Just 3 months ago, our country experienced the deadliest mass shooting in our history. And the responses in Congress from Democrats and Republicans could not have been more different.
Democrats responded by:
-- Holding a sit-in to demand a vote on gun violence legislation
-- Organizing rallies across the country to spread awareness for gun violence
-- And when the Republicans went on vacation, Democrats held a national speak out against gun violence in America
The Republican Leadership responded by:
-- Refusing to hold a vote on LIFE SAVING gun violence prevention bills
-- Staying in the pockets of the gun lobby
-- Going on vacation instead of dealing with America’s gun violence epidemic
Gun violence affects all of us -- regardless of our political affiliations. And we expect our leaders in Congress to work together to solve this crisis. Join Jim Clyburn and demand reasonable, effective background checks. Will you sign your name right now and stand with him in the fight to end gun violence?
Sign our petition today and call on Congress to take action against gun violence
