DEMAND THE SENATE TO PASS COMMON SENSE GUN SAFETY LAWS

While you’re at it, sign this one, too:

FIGHT THE WAVE OF ANTI-LGBTQ+ BILLS AROUND THE COUNTRY


Last night, 8 people were killed in a mass shooting at an Indiana FedEx facility. This is the US’s 45th mass shootings in the past MONTH since March 16th, and 147th mass shooting in 2021 [6]. And yet, the U.S. has the weakest gun safety laws of any comparable country. [4]

In contrast, over 50 anti-trans bills are in progress right now [7] despite the fact that trans kids hurt no one. That is, republican lawmakers are more concerned with restricting and harming trans kids than they are with saving the 38,000+ people who are killed by gun every year.

TAKE ACTION NOW BY SIGNING THIS PETITION TO DEMAND BETTER GUN SAFETY LAWS!
