The Definition of Insanity: Background Checks for Firearms Now

The Definition of Insanity: Background Checks for Firearms Now

Senators: PASS H.R.8 - Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021
And H.R.1446 - Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021 NOW, because mass shootings should not be common. We must do all we can to prevent more gun violence.

Why is this important?

They say the definition of insanity is repeating the same mistake and expecting a different result. Mass shootings should not be part of the nightly news like the weather. There have been way too many including several in the past two months alone. We aren’t safe in our grocery stores, salons, movie theaters, at concerts, at work, in our places of worship, or even in our schools. So many times the targets have been ethnic groups, people of color, religious minorities, lgbtqia, woman, and children. We teachers should not have to worry about our students or ourselves being shot during school. People should be able to worship in safety. This isn’t fake news, these events happened, hundreds of people have died. I have family that attend Synagogue in Pittsburgh PA near to where the tragedy at the Tree of Life Synagogue took place. Now, I worry they could be attacked while going to service. I’ve visited Emanuel A.M.E. in Charleston South Carolina, and to the memorial at the Pulse Night Club in Orlando Florida. These places are now forever marred by tragedy. Survivors and families are forever traumatized and altered. It is simply too easy to purchase firearms. We owe it to the survivors and the families of the slain. Honor their deaths and please tell Congress to pass these bills to make us all safer.

Reasons for signing

  • If you fear a background check for owning a dangerous weapon then you must have something to hide? If so, clean up your act.
  • Common sense Gun laws NEED to be passed in the United States.
  • Keep guns out of the hands of crazies. Check backgrounds regularly and check licenses, and mandate gun training to ensure that guns remain solely in the hands of responsible, sane, trained gun owners. Guns for Daniel Boone types, NOT John Wilkes Booth loons!
