It has been quite a while since I climbed up on my soapbox to rant about guns. Tucson has not forgotten the carnage that happened here after a deranged young man was able to buy a gun and ammunition clips with ease when he should have been prevented from doing so if our broken background check system had been fixed.
This is from the post from Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
Did you know that 34 Americans are murdered with guns every day?
The recent shooting in Tucson is another tragic reminder of how easy it is for dangerous people to get their hands on guns.
Our are designed to prevent felons, the mentally ill, and drug abusers from purchasing guns. But the background check system is broken, and loopholes in the law allows criminals to buy guns with no questions asked.
Please join me in sending a message to Congress to Fix Gun Checks:
How many of these disasters do we have to endure before the U. S, uses some common sense? How long do our legislators have to carry the water for the NRA before they show some spine?
Mayors Against Illegal Guns are trying to change the equation. So far it's been NRA 100% - Citizens 0.
I signed a petition for better gun registration laws. If you agree that we need to do something please sign the petition for sensible gun laws. Click on the link. Petition to fix gun checks
