Tell President Obama: Take Executive Action Against Gun Violence
We know you are open to addressing this issue without Congress, and we therefore encourage you to consider these five actions your administration can take without Congressional approval:
1.Remove exemptions that let dangerous people carry guns near our children's schools
2. Make sure high-volume gun sellers become licensed dealers and are required to conduct background checks for all gun sales.
3. Ensure that federal law enforcement notifies local law enforcement when dangerous criminals try to illegally buy guns at dealers in their community
4. Help states that require background checks for all gun sales to enforce existing laws on the books
5. Don't let convicted domestic abusers buy guns just because they're not married to the person they abused
Why is this important?
88 Americans are killed by gun violence every day in this country, with hundreds more injured. We're tired of waiting for Congress to act on gun violence.
That's why Everytown for Gun Safety just sent President Obama five straightforward actions the White House can take to help curb gun violence, save lives, and reduce crime without waiting on Congress.
We know President Obama is open to these ideas, but to overcome the NRA's aggressive opposition, we need to send an overwhelming message that we want real action NOW.
Sign the petition to President Obama to tell him you support him in taking executive action to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.
