5 #Gunsense New Year Resolutions

Some of you reading this will have been fighting for #gunsense and commonsense gun laws for some time. Some will have just joined the fight. Welcome to everyone.

Some of you will have always been ‘political’. For some of you this will be the first time you’re getting directly involved in a political movement. We are all cynical about politicians and Congress, but something has made you take that decision to say “I MUST ACT”.

Perhaps the 6-year-olds murdered at Newtown was your defining moment. Perhaps you or a loved one have been directly affected by gun violence. Perhaps you are fed up with people telling you that thousands and thousands of Americans dying each year is just “collateral damage” and a “new normal”. Perhaps you are a gun owner who knows that commonsense regulation is needed and are fed up with the NRA’s extremist stance.

You are right not to accept this situation. You are right to no longer stay silent. You are right to take action. You are right to push your politicians.

Without you, the field is left to the special interests and lobbying firms of the gun industry.

Without you, the field is left to those who spread misinformation, fear and paranoia with the sole purpose of making more money from selling guns to whomever they can get away with.

Without you, more children and teenagers will die needlessly.

Without you, more children will cower in lockdown bathrooms, terrified as they cram themselves in during a living nightmare.

Without you, more women will be subjected to deadly domestic abuse.

Without you, America will continue to head to a very dark place.

But with you, things CAN and WILL change for the better.

Make THIS YEAR the year when you take real and meaningful action.

Here are 5 #Gunsense New Year Resolutions – how many can you commit to and follow through on?

  1. I will contact my Senator(s) and State Senator(s) at least THREE times this year and demand that they support commonsense gun laws (such as the “Big Ten”).
  2. I will engage at least THREE friends or family members who currently do not support commonsense gun laws but who I think can be persuaded when given the facts.
  3. I will make a financial contribution this year to an organization lobbying for commonsense gun laws (Unfortunately money really does matter when pushing politicians).
  4. If I have children, I will ask THREE fellow families if they have guns in the home and, if so, how they are stored.
  5. I will encourage at least FIVE friends or acquaintances to take meaningful action this year (either by telling them about my actions or sharing these #gunsense resolutions).

These resolutions are all real and effective steps you can take this year to Continue reading

  • How is this possible?

ANSWER:

  • The NRA DENIES a vote to 70% of its members
  • Turnout is very low among those allowed to vote, FAVORING EXTREMISTS

NRA Board is voted for by just 2% of members

“We’ll take your money, but we don’t trust you to vote

TAKE ACTION – How YOU Can Push For The ” Big Ten” Gun Safety Measures

quote1a

TAKE ACTION:

The only way our laws will change is if people like YOU put pressure on our politicians in the U.S. Congress and State Senates.

Follow these simple steps:

Step 1) Find out who your US Senators and Representative are at http://www.opencongress.org/people/zipcodelookup

Step 2) Find out who your State Senator is from the State Senate website in your state.

Step 3) If possible, coordinate with your neighbors and friends in the area and all make contact on the same day or in the same week.

Step 4) Call, email and/or write to each of your representatives and ask which of the “Big Ten” gun safety measures they support:

  1. Do you support universal background checks, including in private sales? If not, why not?
  2. Do you support an assault weapons ban? If not, why not?
  3. Do you support mandatory child safety locks on all guns? If not, why not?
  4. Do you support mandatory safe gun storage laws, particularly if a household contains a minor or person adjudicated mentally ill? If not, why not?
  5. Do you support repealing the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which prevents victims from holding the gun industry to account? If not, why not?
  6. Do you support limiting magazine sizes to ensure law enforcement are not outgunned? If not, why not?
  7. Do you support mandatory duty of states to report persons with mental health issues to the Federal background check system? If not, why not?
  8. Do you support mandatory liability insurance for all gun owners? If not, why not?
  9. Do you support mandatory reporting by gun owners of lost or stolen guns? If not, why not?
  10. Do you support Smart Gun technology to ensure only approved adults can fire a weapon, as soon as the technology is state-of-the-art? If not, why not?

Step 5) Note down the answers you receive, share them with people in your area and, if possible, publish them to the web. Use #gunsense if posting to Twitter.

Step 6) Attend in-person meetings with your representatives and demand that they support these commonsense gun safety measures.

Thanks for reading and keep working for commonsense gun laws in America.

Every single minute you commit to this fight will prevent more Americans from experiencing that terrifying minute when gun violence erupts.
