Mayors Against Illegal Guns/Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America.

 

If our elected officials won’t change our gun laws, it’s time to change our elected officials.

I was in the Senate gallery one year ago today when a minority of U.S. Senators blocked a bill to expand criminal background checks. They caved under pressure from the Washington gun lobby instead of standing up for more than 90% of the American people who supported the bill. They made the wrong choice.

That’s why I’m proud to announce the launch of Gun Sense Voter, an unprecedented initiative to mobilize Americans in all 50 states to fight gun violence with their votes.

I’m writing to ask you to pledge to vote for candidates in local, state and federal elections who support common-sense laws to reduce gun violence. And, at the same time, help us show others the door.

Will you take the pledge to become a Gun Sense Voter today?

Are you a Gun Sense Voter? Here’s how you’ll know:

 

  • You believe that felons and domestic abusers shouldn’t have access to guns.
  • You think guns don’t belong in places like churches, schools and playgrounds.
  • You think our elected officials should be as passionate about the safety of our communities as they are about the right to bear arms.
  • You understand that each and every vote matters when it comes to reducing gun violence — and you’re not afraid to use yours to create change.

 

If you’re a mom, a mayor, a survivor, a police officer, or a concerned citizen who thinks that our elected officials must do more to stop gun violence, then you’re a Gun Sense Voter.

 

Make it official and take the Gun Sense Voter pledge right now:

I’ve taken the pledge, and I hope you will too.

 

It’s the most important thing you can do to make sure we finally get the common-sense gun laws that will keep our fellow Americans safe from gun violence.

 

Thank you,

WHAT IS GUN SENSE?

 

Gun Sense is the simple idea that we can do more to keep our families and communities safe from gun violence. It’s the belief that we, as Americans don’t have to tolerate 31,000 deaths from gun violence every year.

If you believe that felons and domestic abusers shouldn’t have access to guns; if you think guns don’t belong in places like churches, schools and playgrounds; If you think our elected officials should be as passionate about the safety of our communities as they are about the right to bear arms: You have Gun Sense.

Michael Bloomberg Announces $50 Million Project to Fight Gun Violence

 

Published on Apr 16, 2014

Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to spend at least $50 million this year to combat gun violence in the United States through a new lobbying group, Everytown for Gun Safety.
Bloomberg said in a New York Times article published Tuesday evening that he plans to spend the $50 million — at least — through Everytown’s advocacy work as well as “personal expenditures.”

 

“I put $50 million this year, last year into coal, $53 million into oceans,” he told the Times about the causes he supports. “Certainly a number like that, $50 million. Let’s see what happens.”

 

The group will have kick-off events in several cities across the country on Wednesday to spread the word and launch the “Gun Sense Voter” campaign that aims to mobilize 1 million voters to support officials and laws that tout gun safety.
