More than 100,000 Americans are victims of gun violence each year. Most Americans agree that we need better gun laws to keep us all safe — but lawmakers aren’t taking action.
Too many elected officials are more concerned with the financial muscle of the gun lobby than the wishes of their constituents, or the daily slaughter of their fellow Americans. In 2016 alone, the NRA spent more than $54 million in “independent expenditures” aimed at supporting or defeating candidates for political office — and spent millions lobbying on Capitol Hill.
In the wake of the Parkland shooting, it’s time for every elected official to side with their constituents over extreme pro-gun ideologues or well-paid industry lobbyists. Send a message to your lawmakers today and demand they return all money from the NRA and gun lobby groups and promise to not accept ANY support from such groups.
