The news out of Lafayette on Thursday night was heartbreaking. Another movie theater shooting. Another night with friends and loved ones interrupted by gun violence and bloodshed.
Charleston. Chattanooga. Now Lafayette. Every time tragedy strikes, our political leaders ask for a moment of silence. But what we need is a moment of action.
No more playing politics. It's time to Demand a Vote. We're asking every member of Congress: Will you vote to save lives? Yes or no.
Send a message to your members of Congress. Demand a Vote to close loopholes in the background check system that allow dangerous people to get guns.
Subject: Will you vote to save lives?
The movie theater shooting in Louisiana on Thursday was the third high-profile shooting in the past five weeks. Charleston, Chattanooga, and now Lafayette. Every time tragedy strikes, many elected officials call for a moment of silence. But what we need is a moment of action.
Congress has the power to help reduce crime and save lives by closing loopholes in our background checks laws that make it all too easy for dangerous people to get guns.
I have a simple question: Will you vote to save lives?
