• Ask Senator Ayotte to Support Universal Background Checks
    New Hampshire ranks among the states with the weakest gun violence prevention laws in the country. But the majority of Granite State residents support commonsense gun safety laws to keep dangerous firearms out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. 9 in 10 New Hampshire residents support closing the "gun show loophole" by requiring background checks for all firearm sales—including private sales and transfers. But rather than standing with her constituents, Senator Kelly Ayotte is siding with tea-party radicals and the extreme NRA gun rights lobby by rejecting legislation in Congress to require universal background checks. Please sign our petition - and let Senator Ayotte know that you stand with mainstream New Hampshire citizens in supporting universal background checks and other commonsense solutions to prevent gun violence in our communities.

  • Repeal The Unconstitutional SAFE Act
    As a lawful gun owner, I have a right to own firearms based on my own personal preferences, not ones dictated to me by out of touch legislators in Albany. If this law is not repealed, I will have to ship many items out of state, where I will be unable to make use of them, until such time as I am prepared to move out of state with them. This encroachment on our civil liberties, protected by the United States Constitution, and incorporated against both Federal and State infringement, must not be allowed to stand.

  • Help Us Keep Guns Out of Oklahoma Classrooms
    Currently, there are 2 pieces of legislation (HB 1062, 1622) that have passed the Oklahoma House which would allow for school districts to arm teachers and principals. Bringing guns into classrooms incurs a great risk. We want our teachers teaching kids, not carrying weapons.

  • Liability insurance for concealed gun permits .
    As a responsible citizen of Wisconsin, I am required to carry liability insurance to cover adverse consequences of using my automobile on public roads. I feel persons who feel a need to carry a loaded weapon in public should at the very least shoulder financial responsibility for any adverse action they commit with that weapon.

  • Universal Background Checks Petition to Cathy McMorris Rodgers
    We, the people of the 5th district of Washington State, support background checks for all gun purchases in order to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, the mentally ill, gun traffickers, and drug dealers. We urge Cathy McMorris Rodgers to support background checks for all gun purchases. We need to adopt laws that reduce gun-related deaths and injuries that devastate American communities each year. In the United States a license is required to drive a car and a person will lose their right to drive a car if they do not drive responsibly. It is time for similar uniform requirements for gun ownership for the protection of all Americans.

  • Guns Rights, Mental Health & Public Safety
    I'm a former US Marine, a veteran of OIF. I understand our Constitution and the current economic situation we in Washington continue to endure. I value our freedom to keep and bear arms, as this right is the most potent in protecting all others. However, I have recognized that the root of the greatest threat to our freedom & liberty comes not directly from polilticians, or their backers; the true threat is the growing presence of mentally unstable citizens, who are still able to obtain firearms. An unbalanced individual is far more dangerous to themselves and others than anyone when armed. Since the funding reductions to Western State mental hospital, the number of officer-involved shootings in Seattle and throughout the region has risen. I suspect that there is a direct correlation between the growing number of mentally unbalanced individuals and gun violence. Persons unwilling or unable to remain appropriately medicated are a threat to our public safety. Gun owners are very responsible citizens; a group comprised of veterans and public servants. We don't like the idea of paying more for our weapons, but if it protects our future generation's gun rights, we'll gladly pay extra to support our mentally infirmed.

  • Georgia: Don't Allow Guns in College Classrooms, Churches, and Bars
    House Bill 512, which allows weapons on college campuses, in places of worship, and in bars, passed the Georgia House of Representatives with overwhelming support last week. As a college professor and a minister, I find this terrifying. The Georgia University System as a whole opposes this legislation, but the House supported a few students at urban campuses who feel unsafe and want to carry weapons. Georgia Senate and Governor Deal: fund increased security on these campuses. Don't endanger everyone in the most emotional and/or alcohol soaked places in the state!
