PASS COMPREHENSIVE GUN LEGISLATION NOW
Gun violence is a public health crisis inflicted on America and her children.
Gun violence loudly invades our lives with mass shootings, school shootings, and active shooter drills in schools.
Gun violence quietly and completely devastates day-to-day life when 96 people are murdered daily.
Trump, McConnell, Ryan and #Complict Walden . . .
We refuse to live under this constant threat. We demand that our federal elected officials act NOW. We demand comprehensive gun reform that will keep our country and children safe.
If this Congress won’t help America, we must vote in a Congress that will!
