Take Action against Gun Violence

It’s time to stop gun violence. Tell the Senate to move forward with common sense gun legislation. Legislation with common sense solutions to gun violence will protect our children, our citizens and help restore our public confidence. CA Senator Diane Feinstein is a major sponsor of gun control registration. She and Senator Barbara Boxer need to know we support their efforts. Elizabeth MacNamara, President of the national League of Women Voters,[pictured at left, has been speaking out strongly on this issue. We need to join our fellow League members–and our fellow citizens–in stopping gun violence.

In the coming weeks, Congress will consider legislation to end the gun violence that is plaguing our nation. Some of the proposed solutions include closing the gun show loophole, increasing penalties for straw purchases of guns, banning assault weapons, placing limits on high capacity ammunition magazines, and funding research to report on gun violence in America.

Curbing gun violence is a critical matter of public safety and public health.Tell your Senators this issue is too important to ignore any longer and that common sense solutions to gun violence will save lives.
