Taking a stand against gun violence

Thoughts and Prayers are not enough.

We need action

Featured Action

Tell Senator Toomey to Support S.42.

S.42 will close gaps in our system and ensure that almost every gun sale will go through a background check. This is one of the first bills taken up in this new session of Congress, and we are ready to see it move swiftly. But it can’t get stalled in the Senate. Please ask Senator Toomey to support S.42 today.

“Mr. President, I don’t care about you. I care about what you do. I hate what you are doing.”
Fred Guttenberg, father of Parkland shooting victim Jaime Guttenberg, directly addresses President Trump: “I don't care about you. I care about what you do. And I hate what you are doing. Because you are using the pain of the victims of gun violence to speak in a way that allows you to look like you're going to do something, but only to play games with their emotions and not do it in the end. I don't care about you, Mr. President, but I hate what you do.” https://cnn.it/2KXvww8
