A bipartisan group of more than 550 mayors from across the country, led by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, are calling for commonsense reforms that would stop individuals like the shooter in Tucson from getting a gun and hopefully prevent more mass shootings like the one in Arizona.
These reforms have huge public support (over 90%!)---however, the gun lobby and the NRA *will* fight this tooth and nail. But if we can show overwhelming public demand for the mayors' efforts right now, we can win.
Can you sign this petition to Congress supporting the bipartisan proposal from Mayors Against Illegal Guns?
A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to your Senators and Representative.
Full petition text:
"Congress must keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people by taking two critical steps: 1) Get all the names of people who should be prohibited from buying guns into the background check system. 2) Require a background check for every gun sale in America."
