With the first votes on background checks already underway, it's important that your Senators hear from you about legislation to reduce gun violence in the United States. Senators Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey have proposed one sensible step: expanding background checks for gun purchases.
Sign our petition calling on the Congress to pass expanded background checks for all gun purchases.
Dear [Your Legislator Here] -
I stand with Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly in urging you to take immediate action to reduce gun violence in the United States.
One reasonable solution you could pass that would reduce violence while protecting responsible ownership would be expanding background checks for gun purchases.
[Your comments will be inserted here.]
I look forward to watching your progress and commitment to this important issue.
Sincerely, [Your Name]
you have the power to create change.
