The new Congress must act to end gun violence

This is a public health and safety crisis.

Americans are gunned down in headline-generating mass shootings.

Over 15 thousand Americans were killed in 2017 at the hands of someone with a gun. From record-breaking school shootings to neighborhood altercations that barely register on the local newscast.

Thoughts and prayers are offered. Funerals are arranged. Families grieve.

And then – nothing. No action from lawmakers.

The predictable keeps happening. More mass shootings; even more senseless neighborhood violence.

We cannot continue like this. Join me in demanding that the new Congress take up legislation to reduce gun violence by passing common-sense gun safety laws.

We can start by passing laws that close background check loopholes, preventing domestic abusers from owning firearms, and getting assault weapons off the streets.

Sign the petition demanding the new Congress take action to end gun violence.

Congress must work to protect Americans from senseless gun violence. Newly-elected leaders have the power to save lives.

Thank you for standing with me,

Ellen
