We're just hours from today's Senate vote at 5:30 p.m. EDT on lifesaving gun safety measures – and right now we don't have the votes we need to win. Calling your senators now could make the difference.
We must send a strong, clear signal before it's too late: We demand action to make our communities safer from gun violence. Please call your senators right this minute and urge them to vote to help prevent more tragedies:
Mark Barden remembers how intimidated he felt when he first started talking to lawmakers after Daniel was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary. Please don't let that stop you. We put together a few notes to help you during your quick call:
- Start by telling them your name and that you're a constituent.
- Let them know you support the measures from Sen. Murphy and Sen. Feinstein to strengthen the background checks system and ban individuals on the terrorist watch list from buying firearms.
- Tell them too many families have been torn apart by gun violence, and you're counting on them to vote yes to make our communities safer.
Once you've made your calls, use this link to report back and let us know you called: http://action.sandyhookpromise.org/content_item/senatevotecalls
Thank you so much. We've been asking a lot of you, but we have to act before the next tragedy devastates another community and breaks the hearts of more families.
