Time to take action against gun violence, add your name

Since President Obama's call to action this morning, over 80,000 of you have called on Republicans in Congress to take action against gun violence.

That's all in less than 7 hours! Will you help us hit 100,000 strong?

Terry, if you agree that now is the time to take action against gun violence, add your name here >>

President Obama just left the podium.

In a speech to the nation, he announced his plan to take comprehensive action against gun violence. After years on the political backburner, we now have the momentum to make real progress on this issue. We can't let this moment slip away.

In the next 24 hours, 20,000 people need to sign this petition to send a message to Republicans who are trying to block progress:

Get behind President Obama and support sensible reforms to stop gun violence by signing here.

President Obama is championing Vice President Joe Biden's recommendations on gun reform: an assault weapons ban, universal background checks and limits on the number of bullets in gun magazines.

These are common sense measures to prevent gun related tragedies from tearing apart any more of our families. Sadly, before President Obama even made his announcement, many House Republicans said they were opposed to taking any action. We need to send the message loud and clear that the time for action is now.

Throw your support behind President Obama and the safety of our families by signing the petition now.

These measures won't fix everything, but they are a start. And it's time we started somewhere.

Thanks for your support.
