More than 100 Americans die every day from gunfire. It's a uniquely American epidemic that has plagued our country for decades, and our government has failed to to prevent the massive loss of innocent life at the behest of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
And yet, as more innocents die each day, our national leaders suck up to them. In the wake of unspeakable tragedies, Vice President Mike Pence has sunk so low as to headline the NRA's national convention in Dallas on May 4.
This is an absolute disgrace, and Pence needs to know it.
The NRA spent more than $30 million to elect Trump and Pence — about $750 for every American killed by a gun in 2017. By returning that favor, Pence is insulting every American family who has lost loved ones to gun violence, and worse, ensuring that more will grieve in the future for lives needlessly lost.
Send him a message that this is unacceptable. Demand Mike Pence cancel his speech to the NRA on Thursday.
