It’s time. Join more than 750 mayors and 750,000 grassroots supporters to demand that President Obama and Congress step forward with a plan to end gun violence.

Our efforts cannot bring back the 20 innocent children murdered in Newtown, CT -- or the 34 people murdered with guns every day in America. But we can prevent future tragedies by passing common sense legislation that will:

Require a criminal background check for every gun sold in America
Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines
Make gun trafficking a federal crime, including real penalties for “straw purchasers”

You are asking for help from people with a really bad track record.

Do you see the NRA leading?

How is the track record of the No.1 gun lobby? They are useless to incompetent on this subject.

Your solution is to do what, nothing?

Nope.

Please sign this petition and help make change we can live with.

sadly everytime the local police go after killers, thugs and gang members whose only existence is crime and violence.. its the same lefty groups who wants to let them run amok on the streets.

lol--please show me one lefty group that wants to let criminals run amok on the streets.

thomaswong.1986 says

Year to date... there were over 400 killings of children in Chicago... but you certainly dont hear about it in the lefty media.

Do you ever read the Chicago Tribune?? It's on their front page pretty much every day. In order to hear about it, you have to actually read a newspaper or watch a news program.

It wont end gun violence.

Criminals do not get guns through legal means.

Penalties for illegal gun possession are not nearly enough, and are enforced even less.

For instance in California a felon with a gun can get 18 mo, 2 years, or 3 years. Often since those sentence guidelines are so low, the DA will prosecute only the probation violations which have a much easier standard to meet but only carry a year sentence.

The very obvious solution is to send the criminal to prison for a very long time...lets say 15 years. Then there is no issue since there is no longer a criminal available to obtain a gun. We even have a real life example thats been copied elsewhere(LOL at the backlash citing "racism"...seriously WTF?)

You are much more likely to blow your own fool head off with your gun than protect your neighbor. This is proven by several scientific studies.

pass new law to outlaw metal bullets, only manufacture rubber bullets.....
ban import of ammo..
eventually lethal metal ammo will run out
rubber bullets will be enough to deter intruders till police arrive.
gun freaks can still shoot till their hearts content..
case closed.
ps. if you want to go deer hunting, taser 'em....

Or go at them with a big knife. Now that would be hunting. Or a live chain saw. That would be exciting, chasing down a big buck with fighting it to the death with a spinning saw, chunks of 'em flying everywhere.

you'd have to use a battery powered chainsaw...and put a limit on the number of spare batteries one could carry..
say, a 30 round clip of batteries...

The problem with sending say a 20 year old to prison for 15 years for holding an illegal weapon is they come out of prison at 35 very angry and more mentally scarred then they went in! I bet if i put you in prison for 15 years... You could be released and end up snapping and killing someone.

Prison probably creates more criminals than it rehabilitates.

Our prison system needs reform... Otherwise its just a kicking the can way of punishing people.

I doubt this, unless you had something along the lines of a heavy machine gun firing an unlimited number of rubber bullets. I'd use a crossbow and a taser before rubber bullets.

Felon at 18, illegal gun arrest at 20.

IMO lock the dude up, keep violent criminal off the street for X number of years.

Thats X number of years where he can't commit crime.

Or you can leave him on the street and ban guns. Yeah, he won't get a illegal gun. Right? Oh wait, he already has an illegal gun.

How do people every become so naive?
