Call to Action: Anti-Gun Activists and Responsible Gun Owners

Who will be killed by gun violence today, tomorrow, the next day and days to come? Will it be you, your child, neighbors, family or strangers? Will their death/s mean something to you, or will it just be another person who lost their life to gun violence? As of this morning,  the death count since Newtown is approximately 1,435 souls.  How many more will be added to the list by the time you finish reading this post?

I ask that you become a part of the solution whether you are an anti-gun activist or a responsible gun owner; please help by contacting your elected officials to support gun control and help to ensure the safety of our children, our neighbors, and our families.

“Speaking is difficult, but I need to say something important. Violence is a big problem. Too many children are dying — too many children. We must do something.” – Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, a shooting survivor, today before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun control.
