A prominent gun control activist has been exposed as an NRA spy by Mother Jones magazine.  For years, a woman known as "Mary McFate" posed as a volunteer activist for several prominent gun violence prevention organizations, including the Brady Campaign, the Freedom States Alliance and CeaseFire PA.  As such, she was able to gain access to the highest level of strategic planning and insights of the gun violence prevention movement.  She then turned around and handed that information to her real employer, the NRA.

Sign the petition below and send a message that you want the NRA to stop attacking our civil liberties and our right to seek reasonable gun laws.

On July 30th, Mother Jones magazine broke a story that a longtime gun violence prevention activist known as "Mary McFate" is in fact an undercover freelance spy working for the NRA and the gun industry.

For years, this cynical impostor has been passing along the strategies of the gun violence prevention movement to the NRA while maintaining the profile of a committed gun control advocate.

We have seen how desperate the NRA really is. Their blatant dirty tricks and spending of millions of dollars to influence public officials while blocking important measures that would help reduce the thousands of gun deaths and injuries in our country speaks volumes about what their motivation is.

Haven't enough innocent people died because of the easy access to illegal guns?

It's time to speak up and demand that our legislatures enact the kind of commonsense laws that will help prevent gun violence.
