SITUATION: Recent mass shootings in Buffalo, New York and Uvalde, Texas cry out for action! We should not be deterred from taking action by the powerful gun lobby, the unwillingness of our leaders to pass legislation, or the current atmosphere of devisiveness in the US.
Even small steps will help.
ACTION: Ask Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi to encourage and support legislation reducing access to guns. Call, email or write to ask her to support all efforts to make our children and all of America safer from guns.
WHAT TO SAY: It is time for Congress to take action and reduce gun violence wherever possible. Here are a number of steps Congress could take now:
- Serious and stringent background checks with no loopholes and including “straw” purchaces and guns bought privately or at gun shows
- Federal mandatory waiting period on all gun purchases
- End immunity for firearm companies
- Ban gun sales to anyone under age 21
