Pass Legislation to Reduce Gun Violence

Congress cannot, and must not, ignore the cries for action to reduce gun violence.  President Obama and Vice President Biden have put forth a comprehensive plan of action that includes specific proposals for legislative remedies to stem the increasing gun violence.

There were some 32,000 gun deaths in the US in 2011. Enough is enough! It is time to reinstate a comprehensive assault weapons ban and to ban high-capacity magazines.  Congress must also enact legislation to require universal background checks for all gun purchases (85% of the public supports this). We can no longer allow the irresponsible sale and trafficking of guns.

Tell your Members of Congress that we cannot wait any longer for them to pass meaningful legislation to reduce gun violence.
