Today’s Action: No gun safety laws with the filibuster in place.

This week, we’ve been profiling the pieces of legislation Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is considering bringing to a vote to test his party’s patience with the filibuster, the GOP’s favorite tool of obstruction. From voting rights for BIPOC communities, to equal pay for women, to LGBTQ+ civil rights, each piece of legislation seeks to boost key protections for historically oppressed groups. But now, we turn to a topic that targets absolutely every demographic: gun violence.

We have had 260 mass shootings (with 289 deaths) in 2021 alone, and these numbers do not include the thousands of smaller shootings with fewer but no-less tragic victims.

Schumer plans to hold the Senate’s feet to the fire this month in addressing this epidemic in our country. Time to get loud.

Call or email your Senators and demand they pass common sense gun safety laws – and overturn the filibuster if that’s what it takes to finally get action on this deadly epidemic!

Schools, jobs, movie theaters, concerts…we deserve safety from random acts of violence in our everyday environments. But we aren’t – there is no state in the country that is completely safe from gun violence.

And so much of it is solvable through basic common sense legislation. 90% of Americans support universal background checks, a rare bipartisan issue. Expanded waiting periods on gun purchases is another popular policy. And if not now, with a Democratic trifecta in the White House, Senate, and House, when?

Our leaders must put an end to this violence NOW.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand their support for universal background checks, expanded waiting periods on purchases, and other common sense gun safety laws. Tell Democrats they must pass these laws, even if it takes overturning the filibuster.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling Sen. Kyrsten Sinema to listen to her own state and abolish the damn filibuster, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
