Apr 30 – Mad About the Senate Vote on Gun Safety? Join Our Rally

April 17, our Senate stood firmly to protect gun purchasing loopholes for criminals. This was a great victory for those criminals who want to purchase weapons to target innocent victims. We will not accept that. It’s shocking. It’s a complete disregard for all those lives lost to gun violence, including the lives of our children. Why did so many Senators vote against it common sense gun safety laws? Because they are getting MORE pressure from constituents who oppose gun safety legislation than they are from constituents who support gun safety laws. We have to change that.
