No More School Shootings!

We need “executive authority, “because the NRA has the members of Congress by the “Purse Strings” and many other places!

We need “Executive Action,” because Congress only knows how to Take and Receive rather than Give!

“Poll: 91 percent back gun checks,”!

Tell the NRA Enough is Enough, come to the table and help save our children?

President Obama is considering a game-changing executive action to prevent senseless gun deaths by addressing a dangerous loophole that lets unlicensed, high-volume firearms dealers sell countless guns every year without conducting background checks.

1- But the National Rifle Association is fighting back viciously—tightening its chokehold on lawmakers and spreading inflammatory lies about the president’s plan. It has even promoted messages that threaten “civil war” with Democrats over gun safety measures.

2- The president has to know that allies in Congress will join with him and have his back as he takes bold action. That’s why gun violence prevention stalwarts Representative Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) are asking their colleagues to stand up to NRA scare tactics and join a growing chorus calling on the president to take executive action.

There hasn’t been a single week without a mass shooting during President Obama’s second term.8 During his remarks to the nation following the Oregon shooting, the president spoke to each and every one of us when he said that we—as a nation—are answerable for the unimaginable tragedies like those that have occurred in Roseburg, Columbine, Newtown, and Charleston.9

Now, with nearly every American in favor of expanding background checks, MoveOn members are going all in to make sure President Obama addresses this major gun safety loophole.
