Congress, pass gun limits

Every day in this country, 91 people die from gun violence, and yet we continue to tolerate representatives who fail to act on the wishes of the majority of their constituents while accepting campaign contributions without shame from the gun lobby.

It is time to hold them accountable for their inexcusable behavior.

Join me in pledging to vote exclusively for candidates who support common-sense reforms making it illegal for people convicted of violent hate crimes to buy or possess guns, prohibiting the purchase of guns by suspected terrorists and requiring a background check for every gun sale, no matter where or from whom you buy it.

Call your congressional representatives and share your opinion.
