  • Portsmouth VA Second Amendment Resolution Does Not Represent Me
    For decades we have witnessed senseless, mass killings and injuries of our fellow Americans because the gun lobbies and the people they incite have impeded efforts to prevent reasonable firearms controls from being implemented. Now that the Virginia General Assembly has a majority of members with the will and numbers to make warranted changes, an orchestrated series of protests seeks to intimidate legislators to maintain the status quo. We, the electoral majority in this commonwealth, will not stand silent. We call upon you to carry out our mandate.

  • Ask Democratic candidates to tell their supporters: "No matter who wins, I expect you to be all in."
    Our democracy faces an existential threat if Donald Trump is re-elected. The damage he has done during his first term, enabled by feckless Congressional Republicans who put party over country, will take years, if not decades, to undo. Trump has already packed federal courts with right-wing ideologues; fully one in four U.S. circuit court judges have been appointed to lifetime seats by Trump. His Supreme Court picks have moved the high court to the right of ultra-conservative Justice Scalia. It's terrifying to imagine what the federal judiciary would look like after another four years of Trump nominees. It’s expected that during the Democratic primaries candidates will attack their opponents’ platforms; at times the critiques have been mean-spirited and personal and no doubt will continue that way as the competition intensifies. Worse, though, is what’s playing out among the candidates’ core supporters. Examples abound on social media of insults being hurled at one candidate or another by the others’ supporters. That doesn’t bode well for the general election. To defeat Trump in conservative-leaning swing states (the only ones that matter, thanks to winner-take-all and the Electoral College), to hold the Democratic House majority and to flip the Senate, Democrats will need a get-out-the-vote effort the likes of which we’ve never seen. To achieve that will require efforts well beyond what the eventual nominee will be able to muster on their own. But to listen to some activists, if their candidate doesn’t prevail, yes, they’ll vote for whomever is the Democratic nominee, but beyond that the effort they make will be much less than what it would have been. Given what’s at stake, that’s not acceptable. If the losing candidates’ supporters just show up to vote, but do no more, we could lose it all. The only ones who can change this narrative are the candidates themselves. And they can’t wait until after the convention. Democrats can’t afford to let the acrimony between the camps build to the point that the ill will causes any Democratic activist to sit on the sidelines (the way it did in 2016 between Hillary and Bernie supporters.) The way to build party unity is for candidates to keep sending the message to their supporters, “I expect you to work as hard to elect the Democratic nominee, whoever it is, as you will if I win the nomination. Nothing less is acceptable. Do I have your promise that you’re all in, whoever is nominated?” Imagine the power of a huge display of unity at the end of every Democratic nominee's campaign rally. We need nothing less.

  • End sales of toy assault weapons at Target!
    Target’s weekly ad on the Sunday after Thanksgiving featured a Nerf gun called a “Fortnite AR-E blaster.”(1) This toy gun looks like an AR-15, the weapon of choice for mass shootings—including the school shootings at Margery Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, FL and Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. In these times of horrific gun violence, family-friendly Target should not be selling toys modeled on AR-15s or other assault-style weapons. The US now has mass shootings on a near-daily basis. Children routinely participate in active shooting drills at schools due to the threat of gun violence. Many have seen news reports from shootings, including images of children crying outside their schools while police address the aftermath of a school shooting. Some have been directly affected by gun violence. Imagine those children seeing toy guns at Target that look like the assault-style weapons that are regularly used in mass shootings, packaged in boxes with pictures of smiling children holding the guns. What kind of message does it send to children who fear or have suffered from gun violence to see these “toys” for sale? Imagine a child who comes across a real gun at home or while visiting a friend or relative, which happens with alarming frequency. (2) Will that child who has seen toy guns at Target think the gun is a toy, perhaps leading to an accidental shooting? Imagine a troubled teen who has considered using a gun to injure himself or others? Will seeing the toy guns at Target encourage him or make him think that a real gun is not harmful? Imagine a child playing with one of these toy guns in the yard or a park. Might the police or someone else mistake it for a real gun (especially if the orange tip has been removed) and shoot the child? (3) There may have been a time when most people didn’t think twice about toy guns. But now that mass shootings and school shootings have become routine, no responsible retailer should sell "toys" that look like the deadly assault-style weapons used in those shootings. Guns are not toys. Target holds itself out as a responsible corporation that helps communities. The Target website proclaims: “We’re putting the needs of people, communities and the planet at the heart of how we work today, to help build a better tomorrow.”(4) Target also says it wants “to help all families discover the joy of everyday life.”(5) Selling toy guns that look like assault weapons does not help communities or families; it hurts them. Sign this petition and tell Target: Stop selling toy guns that look like assault-style weapons. 1. https://weeklyad.target.com/promotions?code=Target-20191201&page=14. 2.

  • Ban Military-Style Assault Weapons and Large Capacity Magazines
    UPDATE: May 31, 2022 BACKGROUND The latest mass shootings in Buffalo, NY and Uvalde, TX only serve to reinforce that a federal ban on military-style assault weapons and high capacity magazines needs to pass Congress and be signed by the President. Assault weapons and high capacity magazines are easily available for civilians to acquire in the U.S. Weapons of war have no place in our society. In addition, these military-style weapons and high capacity magazines are the choice of domestic terrorists and other shooters in the vast majority of mass shootings that have taken place across our country. We do not want or need politicians' thoughts and prayers - we want action now! Military-style assault weapons and large capacity magazines have no place in civilian society and are only designed to kill and injure large numbers of people in a short period of time. We cannot allow the daily carnage in our country to be the new normal. Support legislation by Senator Feinstein (S 736) and Rep. Cicilline (HR 108) Tell the President and Congress to act now to ban military-style assault weapons and large capacity magazines. Please sign and share. As we always do, your signatures will be delivered electronically and in person. Thank you.

  • Take the Pledge to Vote Only for Political Candidates Who Support Gun Control
    Grass-root efforts among everyday people are needed to break through the do-nothing roadblock of those who oppose gun control and elected officials at every level who refuse to pursue measures to control gun violence. Here is what I propose: "Take the Pledge! I will never again vote for a public office candidate--of any party--for any office--local, state, or federal--who does not go on the record--publicly--in support of gun control."

  • Attack Gun Violence at its Core with Background Checks, Banning Assault guns
    Because thousands of innocent deaths and heartache can and should be avoided. The rationale for the second amendment today is an anachronism. The way it is currently interpreted has no bearing on its original intent and has expanded the rights of gun ownership to an irrational point. This is a beginning step in repealing and rewriting the amendment to reflect today's realities, not those of the late 1700s when it was ratified. Even if the plan is solely that of Democrats, it should be presented to the American people as such.

  • Louisville, CO: Ban Open Carry and Assault Weapons
    Recent events in Boulder have brought the issue of sensible gun control to the forefront of our public discourse again. I live in the small city of Louisville in the Boulder/Denver area. Several months ago, I was in the Louisville King Soopers when a young man appeared in the store conspicuously wearing a very large handgun and not wearing his mask. Many shoppers noticed this person but were not about to mention the mask issue given the gun. I do not believe store owners and their employees should be put in the position of confronting someone wearing a gun to enforce other rules. Additionally, it was clear that patrons in the store were uncomfortable with the situation -- not a good thing for a business. The State of Colorado enacted a preemption of local government efforts to control some aspects of gun ownership. The courts upheld the Denver bans based on the urban nature of Denver and the inherent interest of the City of Denver to protect its citizens. The front range is basically one big urban area now and as demonstrated by the shooting in Boulder, like COVID-19 we are one big community. If the state won't pass reasonable gun control laws, we can try getting it done city by city even if the courts eventually need to get involved.

  • Justice for Andrew Junior Smyrna
    It is important for my son's case to be re-examined because the evidence shows that the police officer's life was never in any danger and he was acting upon impulse. I also believe that the District Attorney's decision to not charge this case is for political interest. There are so many unjustified police shootings that has taken place in the State of Georgia and the police officers are not being charged by the District Attorneys. There seems to be a culture within the police departments for the officers to use a specific reason of "fear for life" to justify their actions and this will free them of being held responsible for shooting and killing of our children. This type of culture needs to be examined by the United States Justice Department. In addition, there should be an independent audit of the District Attorney's office to examine the processing of evidence in police shooting cases.
