Universal Background Checks Petition to Cathy McMorris Rodgers

We, the people of the 5th district of Washington State, request that our Representative, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, support and vote for universal background checks on all gun purchases.

Why is this important?

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.


Reasons for signing

  • The right to bear arms is important,but also is the safeguards to insure responsibility...
  • Enough pointless & senseless deaths that can be prevented! We're tired of republicans being in the pocket of the gun lobbyists & trying to prevent us from passing bills that will SAVE LIVES! It's despicable! They put their GREED before the lives of the American people. Somewhere down the line they've stopped representing the American people & now they only represent THEMSELVES & their OWN beliefs along with their boss.. The NRA! This has to stop!
  • It's an easy step to help make our communities a little safer.
