ACTION ITEM
From Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America

Tell President Obama he has your support to take executive action to prevent gun violence.
We’re tired of waiting for Congress to act on gun violence — and we bet you are too. That’s why Everytown for Gun Safety just sent President Obama five straightforward actions the White House can take to help curb gun violence, save lives, and reduce crime without waiting on Congress. We know President Obama is open to these ideas, but to overcome the NRA’s aggressive opposition, we need to send an overwhelming message that we want real action NOW.

Click here to sign the petition to President Obama telling him you support executive action to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.
