Federal Gun Safety

Body

Tell your members of Congress (MoCs) you demand common sense gun safety legislation!

*NOW is the time for us to put our outrage over school shootings into action.

*We must demand that our MoCs immediately adopt common sense gun safety.

*If Congress is unwilling to act, we must make sure we have a new Congress in November!

Script: My name is XXX and my address and zip code is XXX. I am a proud member of the Indivisible movement. I demand that you take immediate action to implement common sense gun safety legislation. I want laws that:

-ban the sale of weapons of war, like the one used to kill students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school.

-expand universal background checks.

-close dangerous loopholes that allow guns to be purchased without background checks.

-lengthen waiting periods for gun purchases.

-restrict the purchase of guns by those who are dangerous to themselves and others.

-ban bump stocks, which make guns more lethal.

-hold gun manufacturers accountable for consumer safety by repealing the law that shields them from liability.

-increase funding for mental health services.

-increase funding for school safety enhancements that DO NOT include arming teachers.

I expect you to stand up to the NRA by standing up for me and my fellow citizens and protect us from senseless deaths. If you won’t, I will be sure to vote you out of office in favor of someone who will.
