Gun Safety Is Important

Earlier today, President Obama announced a series of executive orders on gun safety. However, the most important changes we can make to improve gun safety in America can only come with congressional action.

These include:
  • Universal background checks whenever someone buys a gun, whether it is from a licensed dealer or a private seller;
  • Restoring the ban on military-style assault weapons, and a 10 round limit for magazines;
  • Improving access to mental health services;
  • Increasing funding for school security and safety

As President Obama himself said, "this will not happen unless the American people demand it." That means you.

Tell Congress: Pass the gun safety proposals outlined by President Obama.

  1. We should also be able to trace gun sales to track down criminal use of firrearms. The fact that the NRA has been able to block that is proof of the corruption of our democracy.

    Thanks, Jon, for your recent comment on my own gun control post. I just placed it. Needed to do some catching up. Hope all is well for you in the new year.
